Sts. Cosmas and Damian, Martyrs

Patrons of Barbers, Pharmacists, Physicians, and Surgeons

Sts. Cosmas and Damian were brothers, born in Arabia, who had become eminent for their skill in the science of medicine. Being Christians, they were filled with the spirit of charity and never took money for their services. At Egaea in Cilicia, where they lived, they enjoyed the highest esteem of the people.

When the persecution under Diocletian broke out, their very prominence rendered the Saints marked object of persecution. Being apprehended by order of Lysias, Governor of Cilicia, they underwent various torments and were finally beheaded about the year 283.

PRAYER: Lord, may the devout memorial of Sts. Cosmas and Damian render praise to You. For in Your ineffable providence You conferred eternal glory on them and a duty on us. Amen.
