Obscure Saint of the Day: St. Nicander

Happy Ides of March everyone!

Today is the feast of St. Nicander!

(Please note that you will find images of St. Nicander on the internet, but those images are of a different saint with the same name).

Nicander is an Egyptian martyr. 

He was a physician in Alexandria, and because he gave aid to Christian prisoners during the persecution of the Emperor Diocletian, he was promptly beheaded. 

St. Nicander, model of bravery, pray for us!!
