DDSB Saint of the Day for December 22

Saint Ischyrion of Alexandria shared the experience common to a great many martyrs in the mid third century: a government thug told him just burn a little incense to the emperor (what's the harm in that?), and when he wouldn't, he was killed.

Ischyrion's feast is of the Simple class, but he is certainly worthy of remembrance as the Church moves closer to the Nativity of The Martyr.

Lulu's special today on Daily Divine Service Book is a buy two books, get a third book free offer with code DEC22. That's one for the chancel, a paperback copy to keep in the car for shut-in calls, and one to give away. Or you can still use RESOLUTIONS305 for 15% off.
