Obscure Saint of the Day: St. Barhadbesciabas

Ready, friends?

Happy feast of St. Barhadbesciabas!

Say that five times fast!

St. Barhadbesciabas was a Persian martyr, tortured by a king in present-day Iran back in the 300s.

When he was beheaded, the execution initially failed, and he had to be chopped at with an axe again. 

St. Barhadbesciabas died in 355.

St. Barhadbesciabas, pray for us!
