Happy Feast Day
Saint Theodore of Amasea (Theodore the Recruit)
Feast Day: November 9
Patronage: Brindisi, recovery of lost items, against storms, soldiers
Saint Theodore was a new recruit for the Roman army when an edict was issued that all soldiers participate in pagan worship. St. Theodore refused and was jailed for a short time. This gave him time to contemplate the evils of paganism and after he was freed he set fire to the pagan temple of Cybele. He was then tortured and burned alive. St. Gregory of Nyssa preached about his intercession in battle thus he became known as the dragon-slayer and warrior saint and was adopted as the patron of the crusaders.
