Saints Cosmas and Damian were twin brothers and skilled doctors born in Cilicia, Turkey. The brothers gave their services for free and in the process attracted many souls to the then growing number of Christian converts through their daily work and pious life. They treated the poor and wealthy alike without payment, earning the title “The Silverless Ones.” During the period of Christian persecution by Diocletian, they were arrested and tortured, enduring being hung on a cross, stoned and shot at with arrows. Refusing to relinquish their faith, they were finally beheaded.
