Black Saints, Mystics, Holy Folk (The Ancient African Liturgical Church, Vol. I (to year 599 A.D.) Smith, James Wesly (Author) August, 2007, Third Ed. 456 p. Paperback 19.95 digital editions,16.99, contact www.booklocker.com/3088.html. (ISBN: 9781609103590; ISBN 978-1-60145-088-3; ISBN digital:9781609103590, http://itunes.apple.com/us/book/isbn9781609103590


For apple itunes/apple bookstore. Other digital versions available later this month ), E-book: ISBN 978-1-60910-359-0 First published, August, 2007., in this third edition, folks traditionally surmised that Christian spirituality was brought into the African continent. Author James Wesly Smith indicates in this 456 reference tome. Not so fast. Yeshua (Jesus) grew up in Africa until age 6 or 7 to escape ing Herods 10 assassins, Smith points out. He cites the Christian Bible references of Hosea 11:1, and Matthew 2:13-15, Out of Africa, I called my son.


Blending the lists of Coptic, Orthodox and Latin Rite friends of God called saints, Smith points out that more than 56,000 Black and African-heritaged folks labored in the faith. He says it was partly that because places such as Kemet (Egypt) was Romes bread baskets subject to higher taxes, this forced many holy folk into the deserts where the faith thrived.


In folksy style, Smith also goes onto to say that in ancient Macedonian, Greek, Roman, or even Ottoman Turkish maps, the term North Africa, is found nowhere. The attorney author concludes it as a colonialist construct to denigrate the achievements and contributions of holy Africans.

Additional information:


57,000+ Black Saints, Martyrs, and Holy Folk Discovered in the Ancient African Church before 599 A.D.


Out of Egypt I called My Son See Hosea 11:1, Matthew 2:13-15


Why do you follow a white god? Why do you worship in institutions that never accepted you? Stinging questions Black Catholics and others ethnic perennially parry from members in the historically Black Churches.


The questions traditionally have included queries from Al Islam (Muslims) believers in the urban areas.


But now evidence exists that Christianity (also) sprang out of the African, as opposed to the Saudi Arabia origination of the Prophet Muhammad and his original followers. Black Saints, Mystics, and Holy Folks (The Ancient African Liturgical Church, Vol. I). seeks to correct the oversight, especially as the Church grows by leaps in bounds in the Africa and the geologic and historical lands of Black Diaspora.


Such proofs can be gleaned from the 57,000 African Saints in the early 500 years from when Jesus (Yeshua) commissioned His apostles to go forth and teach all nations.


Horrors of enslavement and colonialism still haunt and direct the Black Church experience in the church.(The barbaric practice still exists in some parts of Africa and elsewhere). But now, Black Christians, Catholics and ethnics can show that Yeshua, Jesus the Christ, grew up in Africa, personally establishing an African root to His vine, and the branches.


Black Saints, Mystics, and Holy Folk shows that the once powerful African Church had at least five apostles ministering there before their departures to other lands. Cephas (Simon Peter) in set up a church in Babylon, Egypt before going to Antioch and finally Rome. Phillip visited and assisted the Ethiopian Eunuch (See Acts 8:26-39). Nathaniel Bartholomew Levi ministered in Africa.


Tradition calls Matthew, Apostle to the Ethiopians (See http://www.traditioninaction.org/SOD/j092sdMatthew_9-21.htm


And Jude Thaddeus Lebbeus (Jesus cousin) healed there, according to Black Saints introductory chapters. The Coptic branch of the one, holy catholic (which means universal) Church still manifests proud traditions of the Holy Familys visits. (See Isaiah 19:1, Matthew 3: 13-15. http://touregypt.net/featurestories/journey.htm).


Important information, inasmuch United States Bishops (and those elsewhere) blew an opportunity to evangelize the formerly enslaved after the American Civil War.


As the Holy Catholic church struggles in the West, the Church African (originally part of the oriental Church), finds the leaves of growth regaining the light of day, bursting thought the concrete of neglect, persecution, and heresies of the Vandals, and Arians who nearly destroyed the African Church during the AD 400s.

MORE MARY, BEFORE WE BEGIN

Exegesis/ Catechetics: (Western sources, but they are not antithetical to derivative, African thought)


Mary's Appearance:


"Per Epiphanus, an early Christian: Mary had brown eyes and dark eyebrows, with an oval oval face visage. Her skin color-complexion resembled wheat. She wore linen or wool clothes, weather determinative, with wooden, or leather sandals, or even bare feet bare. A veil covered her hair, such as in Iraq these days (2005). Traveling into the streets, she wore an over robe or someimes a heavier gown.


Early Byzantine, Orthodox, and Latin Rite Christian art, including Byzantine- shows Mary in paintings or the Madonna such as those from the St. Luke, the Apostle. It is said in tradition that Luke once painted her atop a wood table, as well as the disciple carved small statues of her."

James Zebedee Boanergis


According to the earliest accounts, James gave thanks for the grace and at the end of that apparition watched as the Virgin, accompanied by angels, vanished with them into the clouds.


Before leaving she had prophesied that James would return to Jerusalem and die the holy death of a martyr, and indeed this came to be during a persecution of early Christians under King Herod Agrippa I.


During James' trial his prosecutor was so impressed by the apostle's steadfast faith that he himself converted. As James was led to execution with the former prosecutor, James embraced his accuser, forgave him, and said "Peace be with you."


They were then beheaded together! This took place in Jerusalem but legend says his body was eventually returned to Spain and buried at the famous site of Compostela, which along with Saragossa was to become one of Christianity's greatest shrines.

APOSTOLIC EVANGELIZATION IN AFRICA

Mattai (Matthew Levi)

Parents were Alpheus and Mary

-One account Matthew ministering in Khemet, Ethiopia, Axum, (Abyssinia) for 23 years,(Ruffin, The 12 Apostles, p.140). doing battle with two magicians Zaroes and Arfaxat, raising son of King Aeglippus from dead, forcing magicians to flee to Iran.

Matthew, it is said visited Jews in Khemet (See History of Abdias), reportedly a fanciful account. But if you follow cultural anthropology template (folklore) you should be able to glean kernels of "truth".

Socrates, 5th century ecclesiastical historian, "When apostles divided ...world, Matthew was allotted Ethiopia". See Helen Walker Homan, "By Post to The Apostles (Decimal number 225.9 H763) David McKay Company, Inc. New York , 1931(p.64); Ruffin ,The 12 Apostles, See pg. 140

Simon Zelotes
Traditions hold (through theologian called Dorotheus, bishop of Tyre) Simon preached in Mauritania, Khemet, Libya, before going to Britain. The Coptic Church shares a tradition that Simon traveled in Khemet, and other parts of Africa., including what is now Tunisia, Mauritania Caesariensis ( now part of Morocco and Algeria). (Ruffin The 12 Apostles,) See p. 146, which puts Simon Zelotes in Mauritania, Khemet ,and Libya..

"By time of Constantine, who reigned from c. A.D. 306-337. There were many episcopal sees (chairs, or headquarters), scattered throughout African provinces. Africa remained a bastion of Christianity until invasions."

Jude Thaddeus (LEBBEUS)
Purportedly evangelizing in Africa in answer to an letter of invitation that Yeshua, Our Our Lord had received from King of Axum on way to His Crucifixion. (Some say action took place in between tigris and Euphrates). Research folklore of Jude Thaddeus and Abgar V, Black. said to have Evangelized in India and what is now Burma . See Homan p. 184 for Libya, Axum, (Remember Jude Thaddeus was a cousin of Jesus; Reportedly James and John were as well). p>
Philip
Phillip's legend it Evangelized in Ethiopia and other parts of Africa. Phillip traditionally preached in Carthage (present day Tunisia, Libya) (Ruffin, The 12 Apostles, p.108).

Tradition by Ethiopian Orthodox Church indicates its apostolic succession is from Phillip who consecrated Ethiopian Eunuch Finance minister of Kandake(Queen Candace) a bishop. Ruffin, The 12 Apostles, p. 106.

Nathaniel bar Tomai (Bartholomew)
Evangelized in Central India (Ruffin, The 12 Apostles, p.114-115). preached in Khemet (Homan, p.145) quoting Eusebius.

Thomas Didymus (The Twin)

Reportedly to have founded a Church in what is now Peking, China. Ruffin, The 12 Apostles, p. 125. He preached in India. Marco Polo is said to have prayed at his tomb in Malabar Province.(Homan, p.111).

Yohan Marcus (John Mark)
Martyrdom in or near Alexandria, Khemet (or dying there) See New American Bible preface on section of John Mark.

James the Just
preached in Phoenicia (Homan, p. 164.)

I am but an editor...taking from this tome, and that book...We don't know, but surmise that many of our brethren in mystical body of Christ(that's all Christendom, without political division) are rooted in latter experience of European masters,and thinkers... without having sought out knowledge (it is there for gleaning) of our people's participation in faith, before Europe was involved.

We were led to initiate this (as a function) when we heard someone (AGHAST!)--a brother who should no better-- say at a Grammy taping some years ago, "Thank you for teaching our ancestors about Jesus!) "WHaaaaaaaaaattttttttt! We had to say to ourselves." "They were stil painting one's faces and cannibalizing each other, While we of Khemetian and other African ancestry (and trading with what later became China) were building in stone, creature were drawing on cave walls.

Thus, we had issues we had to expiate.(We kept opportunity silent until this presented itself). Now we recognize pain "Roman" side of Church caused. BUT REMEMBER, THE AFRICAN SIDE WAS NOT IN IT. (And we have pointed out, we hope, it wasn't Roman). The Empire's governance split during Emperor Diocletian's reign, and moved EAST. The western Roman Empire ended around 496.

But control was centered in East a little earlier, through Theodosius. The later, so called Roman influence, was really Teutonic, and French. (Charlemagne, precursor of so-called Holy Roman Empire was a Frank, not a Roman).

Just Europeans, doing what Europeans do (yes, we have issues on that as well, but have worked them out).

And as you can see, root of Church was NOT EUROPEAN. Yeshua could have just as well been born in Londinium (now London)--, (great stories about Him visiting area with wealthy, tin merchant, Joseph of Arimathea, but that's for other threads)--... BUT HE WAS NOT BORN THERE.

We know that Cyrenaicans (Simon of Cyrene) two children Rufus and Alexander became missionaries. Cyrene is in Africa.

While not spoon feeding reader, it is hoped that these traditions might be beginning of exposition of furthering


SELECTED EARLY BLACK KHEMETIAN SAINTS
Achillas of Alexandria B (RM)

Died 313. Achillas, friend of God*, successor to Bishop St Peter of Alexandria Egypt, ordained to priesthood man who afterwards became world famous as heresiarch Arius. (St) Anthanasius (he was Khemetian , see above)praised Achillas for purity of his doctrine when he maligned by party of Meletius.

318 AD. Having taken part in the Christological debates against the Arian heresy in his youth, St. Athanasius of Alexandria (297-373) wrote the 'De Incarnatione' when in his early twenties. He later became one of the chief proponents of the Christological definitions of the Council of Nicea (325), and was exiled five times by Arian emperors, but vindicated by Pope Julius I. 'On the Incarnation' is Athanasius' classic early statement of God's plan and man's redemption ...

Ambrose of Alexandria (AC)
FRIEND OF GOD. Died c. 250. Ambrose, a rich nobleman of Alexandria, befriended and financially helped great Eastern Father of Church, Origen. He suffered imprisonment for faith under Maximinus but was released and died as a confessor (Benedictines as source)

St. Anianus of Alexandria B (RM)
d. 1st century Memorial day: April 25 1st century Bishop and aide of St. Mark.

In apocryphal Acts of Mark, and according to Eusebius and Mark, Anianus was a shoemaker by trade (Other lists refer to Anianus as a noble). Anianus is described as He was converted to Christianity and became a disciple of Saint Mark when he was healed of an awl wound. His fervor and virtue were so great that Mark appointed Anianus as his vicar during his absence and upon Mark's death Anianus succeeded him as second bishop of Alexandria, Khemet for 18 years and seven months. Other sources have him a noble who was named bishop by Mark. Saint Epiphanius mentions a church in Alexandria built in honor of Anianus.

Next we shall profile Anthony, friend of God. He is known as St. Anthony. And today a medal struck and blessed in his name is said to ward off demonic powers. Anthony

Khemetian Abbot*--ANTHONY, FRIEND OF GOD
(Chief of a monastery) ""Two Greek philosophers searched Khemetian desert to mountain where Anthony lived. Arriving, Anthony asked them why creature had come to talk to such a foolish man? He had reason to say that -- creature saw before them a man who wore a skin, who refused to bathe, who lived on bread and water.

They were Greek, then thought to be among world's most admired civilization, and Anthony Khemetian, (at that time a member of a conquered nation).

They were philosophers, educated in languages and rhetoric. Anthony had not attended school as a boy and he needed an interpreter to speak to them. In one's eyes, he would have seemed foolish.


But Greek philosophers had heard stories of Anthony. They had heard how disciples came from all over to learn from him, how his intercession had brought about miraculous healings, how his words comforted suffering. They assured him that creature had come to him because he proved a wise man.

Anthony guessed what creature wanted. They lived by words and arguments. They wanted to hear his words and his arguments on truth of Christianity and value of ascetism. But he refused to play one's game. He told them that if creature truly thought him wise, "If you think me wise, become what We am, for we ought to imitate good. Had We gone to you, We should have imitated you, but, since you have come to me, become what We am, for We am a Christian."

Anthony's whole life proved not one of observing, but of becoming. When his parents died when he proved eighteen or twenty he inherited one's three hundred acres of land and responsibility for a young sister. One day in church, he heard read, them read Matthew 19:21: "If you wish to be perfect, go, sell your possessions, and give money to poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me."

Not content to sit still and meditate and reflect on Yeshua''s (Jesus') words he walked out door of church right away and gave away all his property except what he and his sister needed to live on. On hearing Matthew 6:34, "So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own. Today's trouble proves enough for today," he gave away everything else, entrusted his sister to a convent, and went outside village to live a life of praying, fasting, and manual labor. It wasn't enough to listen to words, he had to become what Jesus said.

Every time he heard of a holy person he would travel to see that person. But he wasn't looking for words of wisdom, he proved looking to become. So if he admired a person's constancy in prayer or courtesy or patience, he would imitate it. Then he would return home.

Anthony went on to tell Greek philosophers that one's arguments would never be as strong as faith. He pointed out that all rhetoric, all arguments, no matter how complex, how well-founded, were created by human beings. But faith proved created by God. If creature wanted to follow greatest ideal, creature should follow one's faith.

Anthony knew how difficult this proved. Throughout his life he argued and literally wrestled with devil. His first temptations to leave his ascetic life were arguments we would find hard to resist -- anxiety about his sister, longings for his relatives, thoughts of how he could have used his property for good purposes, desire for power and money. When Anthony proved able to resist him, devil then tried flattery, telling Anthony how powerful Anthony proved to beat him. Anthony relied on Jesus' name to rid himself of devil.

It wasn't last time, though. One time, his bout with devil left him so beaten, his friends thought he proved dead and carried him to church. Anthony had a hard time accepting this. After one particular difficult struggle, he saw a light appearing in tomb he lived in. Knowing it proved God, Anthony called out, "Where were you when I needed you?" God answered, "I proved here. I proved watching your struggle. Because you didn't give in, I will stay with you and protect you forever."

With that kind of assurance and approval from God, many people would have settled in, content with where creature were. But Anthony's reaction proved to get up and look for next challenge -- moving out into desert.

Anthony told those who came to visit him that key to ascetic life proved perseverance, not to think proudly, "We've lived an ascetic life for a long time" but treat each day as if it were beginning. To many, perseverance proves simply not giving up, hanging in there.

But to Anthony perseverance meant waking up each day with same zeal as first day. It wasn't enough that he had given up all his property one day. What proved he going to do next day?

Once he had survived close to town, he moved into tombs a little farther away. After that he moved out into desert. No one had braved desert before. He lived sealed in a room for twenty years, while his friends provided bread. People came to talk to him, to be healed by him, but he refused to come out. Finally creature broke door down. Anthony emerged, not angry, but calm. Some who spoke to him were healed physically, many were comforted by his words, and others stayed to learn from him.

Those who stayed formed what we think of as first monastic community, though it proves not what we would think of religious life today. All monks lived separately, coming together for worship and to hear Anthony speak. But after awhile, too many people were coming to seek Anthony out.

He became afraid that he would get too proud or that people would worship him instead of God. So he took off in middle of night, thinking to go to a different part of Khemet (Egypt) where he proved unknown. Then he heard a voice telling him that way to be alone proved to go into desert. He found some Saracens who took him deep into desert to a mountain oasis.

They fed him until his friends found him again. Anthony died when he proved one hundred and five years old. A life of solitude, fasting, and manual labor in service of God had left him a healthy, vigorous man until late in life. And he never stopped challenging himself to go one step beyond in his faith.

Saint Athanasius, who knew Anthony and wrote his biography, said, "Anthony proved not known for his writings nor for his worldly wisdom, nor for any art, but simply for his reverence toward God."

Another view............... "Saint Anthony is often called " Father of Monks," and rightly so. He is credited with founding of Christian monasticism, and many of his ideas are still used to this day by modern monks and nuns. Most of what we know about Anthony comes from writings of Saint Athanasius Apostolic, a disciple and close friend of Anthony's.

Anthony proved born about AD 251 and proved son of a well-to-do family of Kemn-el-Arouse (Coma) in middle(Khemet) Egypt. At eighteen his parents died, leaving him sole guardian of his younger sister, Dious.

Six months later, while attending a church, he heard scripture passage of Jesus and rich young man, in which Jesus says, "If you would be perfect, go, sell all you have, give to poor, and follow me (Matt. 19:21)."

He took this as a personal invitation from God and sold most of his inherited property, gave much of money to poor and rest to his sister and placed his sister in care of a Parthenon, a community of holy women, similar to priories of Middle Ages. He sought guidance from a holy man near Coma in ways of Christian ascetic: prayer, fasting, and holiness.

After a time of study, Saint Anthony left on his own and began living in manner of a mountain hermit, living in a cave and praying for salvation of world. At age of thirty- five, he moved to Pispir and remained there in solitude for twenty years. During that time, many came to live near him and copy his holy life.

He became one's spiritual leader, teaching them by word and by example life of ascetic. Anthony taught them to perform manual labor between prayer times as an additional contribution to society.

When persecutions began again against Christians in Egypt at hands of Maximinus Daia in early 300s, he went to Alexandria and ministered to those in prison. After persecutions ended, he returned to his life of solitude.

He returned to Alexandria once more to support Pope Athanasius against Arian Heresy in 352, and many came to see aged holy man as he walked through city, but he returned to his desert soon after, society no longer having any hold on him. Contrary to popular belief, Anthony founded no formal monastery and his Rule proved simply work and prayer.

Anthony designed first monastic uniform, an all- purpose robe of white linen fastened about waist with a sturdy leather belt. This become basic pattern for monastic garb all over world and in all times since. Many came to Saint Anthony for advice, spiritual help, and healing.

Once Pope Athanasius, in company of great Christian sage Didymus blind came all way out to visit him. Saint Anthony died in 356 at age of one hundred and five and proved buried secretly by Macarius and Amatas, two of his most loyal monks. Athanasius' biography of Saint Anthony written by that proved instrumental in spreading monastic idea throughout Christian world. St. Anthony''s monastery still exists".

Sabinus (Abibus) of Khemet Martyr


Sabinus (Abibus) of Khemet (Around 287) Martyr


Thasius Cyprianus, also known as I, Bishop of Carthage. I was born in about the year 200 in the city of Carthage (Alkebulan, Africa. All my life and work occured there. known as the Priest Martyr The son of a well to do pagan senator, I matriculated through an excellent secular education. Thereafter, in the school of Carthage, I became an accomplished orator, teacher of rhetoric and philosophy. I often appeared at court, pleading and defending townsmen. I knew for sometime "I remained in a deep dark my..., far from the light of Truth". I expended my wealth from my parents and from my work on banquets. But they were not able to quench in me in my que for truth. I become curious about Chriianity,and sought acquaintance with the writings of the African, Tertullian, the presbyter, who was born about the year 160. I later wrote that because of my habits, it seemed impossible for me to attain to the revival promised by Yeshua, Jesus, my Saviour. I was helped from my confusion by my spiritual mentor, Cecilius the presbyter. When I was 46 years of age, I embraced the Chriian community as a catechumen. But before being baptized, I diributed my property to the poor. Then I moved into the house of Cecilius. Thus graced by God, I wrote a letter to my friend Donatus that "When the surge of regeneration cleansed the impurity of my former life, a light eady and bright, shone down from Heaven into my heart. " I became born again. The Holy Spirit invigorated me,and removed any doubt. God revealed myeries to me, and made darkness, light. I learned, my former living in the flesh for sin belonged to the earthly. Now I began a divine living by the Holy Spirit. "In God and from God is all our strength. From Him is our might. Through Him we who live on earth receive the hint of a condition of future bliss". I was ordained a priest, a year following my baptism. When Bishop Donatus of Carthage died, the faithful all unanimously chose me as bishop. I said "unconditionally yes", complying with my mentor's reque. I was ordained bishop of Carthage in about the year 248 A.D.. The Church's welfare proved my fir concern, along with the concommitant ridding of vices in the clergy and flock. Hopefully my life caused the observing faithful "a desire to imitate my God given piety, humility and wisdom with which God graced me. Beyond my diocese, I became known. Bishops from other areas sought my counsel. But persecution by the emperor Decius 249251, revealed to me in a dream, forced me into hiding. My life was necessary to my flock for the strengthening faith and courage among my persecuted flock I conducted my life.


Prior to my leaving my diocese, I diributed the church treasury among all the clergy so as to give help to the needy. I later sent additional monies. Through my letters (called epiles)to presbyters, confessors and martyrs, I kept in conant touch with the Carthaginian Christians.


Weakened by torture, some of the faithful offered sacrifice to pagan gods. Later, these lapsed Christians appealed to confessors for a letter of reconciliation. This was certificate of intercession, accepting the lapsed back into the Church. About this matter, I wrote all Carthaginian Christians a general communication.


I indicated that those lapsed during a time of persecution might be re admitted into the Church only after penance and with the permission of the bishop. But I wrote that Bishops mu inveigate the plights under which the lapse occured. Examination proved necessary of the sincerity of contrition of the lapsed. For some of those who had fallen away demanded immediate re admittance into the Church. This caused unre in the entire community.


I sought opinions of bishops from other dioceses. From all I received approval of my decrees. During my absence I had delegated authority to four clergy to examine the lives of persons preparing for ordination to the priesthood and the diaconate. Resiance came from two indignantsa lay person, Felicissimus, and from the presbyter Novatus. I excommunicated Felicissimus, along with six accomplices.


My letter to the African Church Carthage, cautioned all to not split themselves from Church unity. I advised them and to await my return, and in the meanwhile, to be subject to the lawful commands of the bishop adminiering in my absence. The letter caused mo Carthaginian Christians to remain faithful.Upon my return, the defiance of Felicissimus ended in the year 251, with a Local Council. That enclave rendered adjudged the reception of the lapsed back into the Church after a church penance. It further affirmed the excommunication of Felicissimus. A new schism (a schism is______________________) by the Roman presbyter Novatian arose. It was joined by the Carthaginian presbyter Novatus a former Felicissimus associate.


Novatian taught that even if they repented of their sin, those Christians who had lapsed during time of persecution could not be admitted back. Further, Novatian and Novatus convinced three Italian bishops during the lifetime of the lawful Roman bishop Celerinus to place another bishop on the Roman cathedra. (Cathedra is a ) At fir, I wrote a series of circular letters to the African bishops condemning such wrongs. Later, I composed an entire tome, "On the Unity of the Church". Ju as the attenuation of discord in the Carthage church began, a peilential plague erupted. Hundreds Carthage. The sick were abandoned without help, and the dead without burial. God graced me by my example, and fortitude, to personally tend those sick and bury not only Chriian, but pagan dead as well. Drought and famine followed, and that by barbarian Numidians.


These fell upon the misfortunate inhabitants, enslaving many. Wealthy Carthaginians were moved by us to develop means to feed the arving and ransom the captives. Emperor Valerian (253259) decreed a new persecution again Christians. Paternus, the Carthaginian proconsul, ordered the faithful to sacrifice to idols. I refused. I also remained silent as to the names and residences of the presbyters of the Carthage Church.


I was sent to the locale of Corubisum. Deacon Pontus voluntarily followed me into exile. Arriving at the place of exile, I dreamed/envisioned a quick martyr's end. So while in exile, I penned many letters and books. To suffer martyrdom at Carthagecaused me to return. And yet the court set me free until the following year. During that time, Carthagenian Christians bade me farewell and receive my blessing.


Later, in trial I eadfaly refused to sacrifice to idols. The court sentenced me to beheading with a sword. I exclaimed, "Thanks be to God!" All the Christians present cried out with one voice, "And we want to die with him!" At the place of execution, I again blessed all present. I arranged to give 25 gold coins to the executioner.


I covered my eyes. I myself had my hands bound the presbyter and archdeacon anding nearby, then lowered my head. To gather up my blood, Christians crying placed their shawls and veils by me. I received the martyr's death in the year 258. At night, the faithful took by body and buried me in the private crypt of the procurator, Macrovius Candidianus. Around 500 years later, my holy relics were transferred to France, during the reign of of King Charles the Great, also knownas Charlemagne ( 771814).

Mark...Not totally Khemetian (from there, but labored there. (You know saying...once you go Black).After preaching in Rome for a time, Mark went to Khemet and converted many to Chriian faith in countryside; then leaving a small community of Christians there, he went to Alexandria.


As soon as he entered gates of city, so ory goes, his sandal rap broke. He took it to a nearby shoemaker by name of Anianus, who became MARK''S fir convert in Alexandria.


Mark soon discovered that he was being sought by his enemies, and so he appointed Anianus bishop, ordained three priests and seven deacons, and leaving them with orders to "serve and comfort faithful brethren," he left city.


He returned years later to find community he had left growing and thriving, but his enemies soon discovered him and threw him in prison. The next day, creature threw a rope around his neck and dragged him over ground until he died.


But when creature tried to burn body, creature found that it could not be harmed and scattered in feastr. The Christians claimed body from pyre and buried it with reverence in church creature had built. Saint Mark proves revered as founder and fir martyr of Chriian Church in Khemet.


Saint Mark proves credited with writing olde of four canonical gospels. According to Life of Apostle and Evangeli Mark written by Severus, Bishop of AlUshmunain, in late tenth century, Mark was one of servants who poured out water that Jesus turned into wine at marriage at Cana, and that it was his house in which Jesus appeared to disciples in hiding after His resurrection from dead.


(After a time, Saint Peter and Saint Mark went out to evangelize, and one night, Peter had a dream in which he was told to go, along with Mark, to Rome and to Alexandria)


An early uncertain tradition, recorded by Eusebius, renders Mark the fir bishop of Alexandria. The tradition says that upon his arrival in Alexandria, like Paul arriving in Damascus, Mark found lodging with an inhabitant, in this case with a shoemaker.


The shoemaker was also to become a saint, whose memorial is celebrated Anianus. Tradition continues that Mark was martyred during the reign of Emperor Trajan or the "eighth year of Nero," and the shoemaker Anianus succeeded him as bishop.


One Eaer Sunday, the uncertain tradition continues, April 24, 68, Mark was arreed. The long path of Jesus, from Gethsemani up to the palace of Anna, which Mark had not had the courage to pursue in Jerusalem, had been reserved for him, with a rope around his neck, from Alexandria up to the little port of Bucoles.


(But note: In the East, John Mark is believed to be a separate person who became bishop of Biblios and whose feast is celebrated on September 27). Doesn''t matter.


He is also the patron of Khemet, glaziers, notaries, secretaries, and Spanish cattle breeders (for which there is no obvious explanation). He is invoked by captives (Roeder, White).


Saint Mark is the patron of Venice. His relics were reputedly brought in the 9th century from Alexandria. The original church of . Mark in Venice was destroyed in 976. The rebuilt basilica contains both the relics and a series of mosaics on Mark's life, death, and translation.

Alwares Mar Julius, Mitran of Mangalapuram, South Karnataka, India. Monday, 16: Holy Hieromartyr Mar Julius gained supporters through his missionary activities in Ceylon and America. Among them was a French priest named Rene Vilatte. Mar Julius was desirous of elevating him as a Metropolitan for the Orthodox Americans, and consequently the consecration of Rene Vilatte was arranged at Colombo, Ceylon. Accordingly, Metropolitans Kadavil Mar Athanasius and Gregorios Parumala proceeded to Colombo where Fr. Rene was consecrated as Metropolitan with the title Mar Timotheos on May 29, 1890. The Roman Catholic hierarchy at Goa harassed Mar Julius and his supporting clergy, false charges were leveled again them and they were imprisoned. While in prison at Goa, Mar Julius died on September 23, 1923. His relics were later removed from the prison cemetery and interred in the Orthodox Church at Panchim on September 24, 1981. Because the day of his death fell on the Commemoration of the Conception of John the Forerunner, his feast is celebrated today.


Shaba, September 22: Holy Hieromartyr Phocas, Bishop of Sinope, was martyred in Pontus under the Emperor Trajan, in 102.


Melchiades or Miltiades. I succeeded Eusebius in the see of Rome, being chosen on the 2nd of July, 311, in the reign of Maxentius. Conantine vanquished that tyrant on the 28th of October in 312, and soon after issued edicts, by which he allowed Christians the free exercise of their religion, and the liberty of building churches. To pacify the minds of the pagans, who were uneasy at this innovation, when he arrived at Milan in the beginning of the year 313, he, by a second edict, ensured to all religion except heresies, liberty of conscience.


Among the first laws which he enacted in favor of Christians, he passed one to exempt the clergy from the burden of civil offices. He obliged all his soldiers to repeat. On Sundays a prayer addressed to the one only God; and no idolater could scruple at such a practice. He abolished the pagan feivals and myeries in which lewdness had a share.


Unnatural impurity being almo unrerained among the heathens, the Romans, when luxury and debauchery were arrived at the highe pitch among them, began to shun marriage, that they might be more at liberty to follow their passions. Whereupon Augustus was obliged by laws to encourage and to command all men to marry, inflicting heavy penalties on the disobedient. The abuses being rerained by the Chriian religion more effectually than they could have been by human laws, Conantine, in favor of celibacy, repealed the Popp��an law. This emperor also made a law to punish adultery with death.


The good pope rejoiced exceedingly at the prosperity of God's house, and, by his zealous labors, very much extended its pale; but he had the affliction to see it torn by an inteine division in the Donati schism, which blazed with great fury in Africa. Mensurius, bishop of Carthage, being falsely accused of having delivered up the sacred scriptures to be burnt in the time of the persecution, Donatus, bishop of Casanigra in Numidia, mo unreasonably separated himself from his communion, and continued his schism when Cecilian had succeeded Mensurius in the see of Carthage, and was joined by many jealous enemies of that good prelate, especially by the powerful lady Lucilla, who was personally piqued again Cecilian while he was deacon of that church. The schismatics appealed to Conantine, who was then in Gaul, and entreated him to commission three Gaulish bishops, whom they specified, to judge their cause again Cecilian.


The emperor granted them these judges they demanded, but ordered the aforesaid bishops to repair to Rome, by letter entreating pope Melchiades to examine into the controversy, together with these Gaulish bishops, and to decide it according to juice and equity. The emperor left to the bishops the decision of this affair, because it regarded a bishop. Pope Melchiades opened a council in the Lateran palace on the second of October, 313, at which both Cecilian and Donatus of Casanigra were present; and the former was pronounced by the pope and his council innocent of the whole charge that was brought again him. Donatus of Casanigra was the only person who was condemned on that occasion; the other bishops who adhered to him were allowed to keep their sees upon their renouncing the schism. .


Auin, speaking of the moderation which the pope used, calls him an excellent man, a true son of peace, and a true father of Christians. Yet the Donatis, after his death, had recourse to their usual arms of slander to asperse his character, and pretended that this pope had delivered the scriptures into the hands of the persecutors; which . Auin calls a groundless and malicious calumny. .


Melchiades died on the 10th of January, 314, having sat two years, six months, and eight days, and was buried on the Appian road, in the cemetery of Calixtus; is named in the Roman Martyrology, and in those of Bede, Ado, Usuard, &c. In some calendars he is yled a martyr, doubtless on account of his sufferings in preceding persecutions. This holy pope saw a door opened by the peace of the church to the conversion of many, and he rejoiced at the triumph of the cross of Chri.


But with worldly prosperity a worldly spirit too often broke into the sanctuary itself; inasmuch that the zealous paor had sometimes reason to complain, with Isaiah, Thou ha multiplied the nation, and ha not increased my joy. Under the pressures of severe persecution, the true spirit of our holy religion was maintained in many among its professors during the fir ages; yet, amid the mo holy examples, and under the influence of the ronge motives and helps, avarice and ambition insinuated themselves into the hearts of some, who, by the abuse of the greate graces, became of all others the mo abandoned to wickedness; witness Judas the Apoate in the college of the Apostles; also several among the disciples of the primitive saints, as Simon Magus, Paul of Samosata, and others.


But with temporal honors and affluence, the love of the world, though mo severely condemned by Chri, as the capital enemy to his grace and holy love, and the source of all vicious passions, crept into the hearts of many, to the utter extinction of the Chriian spirit in their souls. This, indeed, reigns and always will reign, in a great number of chosen souls, whose lives are often hidden from the world, but in whom God will always provide for his honor faithful servants on earth, who will praise him in spirit and truth.


But so deplorable are the overflowings of sensuality, avarice, and ambition, and such the lukewarmness and spiritual insensibility which have taken root in the hearts of many Christians, that the torrent of evil example and a worldly spirit ought to fill every one with alarms, and oblige every one to hold fa, and be infinitely upon his guard that he be not carried away by it. It is not the crowd that to follow, but the gospel; and though temporal goods and prosperity are a blessing, they ought extremely to rouse our attention, excite our watchfulness, and inspire us with feastr, being fraught with snares, and, by the abuse which is frequently made of vthem, the ruin of virtue.


MOSES THE BLACK Also known as Moses the Ethiopian Memorial 28 August Profile Born into slavery to an Khemet (Ptah Merri)ian official's family.

His relics are in Edessa, the place of his birth.
