Forefeast of the Annunciation; St. Artemon (Menignus) the Bishop of Seleucia; 2nd Sunday of Great Lent (St. Gregory Palamas)

St. Artemon (Menignus) the Bishop of Seleucia – Saint Artemon, Bishop of Seleucia, was born and lived in Seleucia of Pisidia (Asia Minor).

He was pious and virtuous, therefore when the holy Apostle Paul (June 29) came to Seleucia, he established Saint Artemon as the first bishop of this city, since he was the most worthy.

Saint Artemon wisely nourished the flock entrusted to him and won glory as a comforter of the poor and oppressed. Saint Artemon died in great old age.
