Orthodox holiday today, June 2 – the day of memory of the martyr Falaley of the Aegean

Falaley lived in the III century, in the city of Aegea. He himself was a doctor and professed the Christian faith, for which he fell out of favor. At first he was persecuted in Libya, and Falaley had to move, but he was not given peace in the new place either.

18-year-old Falaley was seized and demanded to renounce his faith, and after his refusal they were sentenced to hang him upside down on a tree. But God’s providence worked in such a way that the executioners, who accepted the Christian faith, hung a piece of wood instead of a doctor. The executioners were immediately executed, and Falaley was ordered to be drowned. But even this failed: the saint miraculously escaped death. Ultimately, the Christian was executed.

The relics of St. Thalalea are now in Constantinople, in the church of St. Agathonicus and heal people who come there.
