Saint Queremón y compañeros mártires

December 22nd III century Obispo

Commemoration of Saints Chaeremon, Bishop of Nilopolis, and other martyrs in Egypt, some of whom, during the persecution under the Emperor Decio, were on the run and, erring by solitary places, part succumbed to predators, others consumed by hunger, cold and disease, and the rest, finally, exterminated by the barbarians and the robbers, and thus, all dying variously, were crowned with the glory of martyrdom.
