Greatmartyr Panteleimon (all-merciful) was martyred under Emperor Maximian (c. 305 AD). We celebrate his feast day on July 27th. Educated as a physician, St. Panteleimon dedicated his life to the suffering, the sick, and the unfortunate and needy. He never turned anyone away and treated all without a fee, healing them in the name of Jesus Christ. St. Panteleimon endured much torture and remained unharmed. Maximian ordered St. Panteleimon to be beheaded. Upon completion of his execution his body was thrown into a fire and came out untouched. His relics can be found at the Putna Monastery (Bucovina, Romania) and at Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral in Romania.
