HOLY HIEROMARTYR GREGORY V Patriarch of Constantinople

HOLY HIEROMARTYR GREGORY V
Patriarch of Constantinople

Thou wast both a sharper of the ways, and a successor to
the throne of the Apostle, O divinely inspired one, and thou didst
find activity a ladder to the vision of God. Wherefore thou
did rightly divide the word of truth and didst
strive for the faith even unto the shedding of thy blood. O
Hieromartyr Gregory, intercede with Christ God that our
souls be saved. (Tone IV)

DEDICATION
Dedicated to the New Martyrs of these latter days, wherever they
may be found, who by their struggles confirm the Faith of
Christ, the same yesterday, today, and unto the ages. Amen.

PREFACE
It is with joy that we publish this volume of lives of New Martyrs
who suffered in the Ottoman Empire. Many of these
saints are unknown here in America – except by those who read
Greek – just as the lives of the New Martyrs of Russia were
virtually unknown to non-Russians before the translation of
some of their lives. All are precious to us. We hope in the future
to add to this collection lives of more martyrs and saints who
struggled to live Christian lives during the difficult period of
Moslem domination. May God make this possible.
