Importance of this day Martyrs Mar Quriaqos and his mother Yolethe
Mar Yolethe and her son Saint Quriaqos were martyred in AD 304 in Tarsus. According to legend, Julietta and her three-year old Cyricus had fled to Tarsus and were identified as Christians. Julietta was tortured, and her three year old son, being held by the governor of Tarsus, scratched the governor's face and was killed by being thrown down some steps. Julietta did not weep but celebrated the fact that her son had earned the crown of martyrdom. In anger, the governor then decreed that Julietta s sides should be ripped apart with hooks, and then she was beheaded. Her body, along with that of Cyricus, was flung outside the city, on the heap of bodies belonging to criminals, but the two maids rescued the corpses of the mother and child and buried them in a nearby field.

Mystery of the Holy Spirit - He works and fills the creation, the Prophets, Judges, Kings, Virgin Mary, John the Baptist, Jesus, Shlihe (Apostles), Church and every faithful - By His Power of the Church sprouts and grows in Jesus and the Shlihe, the foundation.

Age of the Church

Exactly as Jesus was formed in Virgin Mary so too the Church in this world by the Power of the Holy Spirit - those who are led by the Spirit must always be vigilant to root out at the very outset all selfish and individualistic likes and dislikes which topple down our faithfulness to the Church.
