Saint’s Biography

Saint Bessammonius of Egypt was among the group of 37 Christian nobles who worked together to spread the faith in Egypt. Although there were many converts, the men were attacked in different places in the country. The governor of the region had them all arrested, brought to and ordered them to make public sacrifices to prove they were good citizens. Everyone refused.
