Martyr Thekla of Palestine

The Martyrs Thekla, Agapius, and Timothy suffered martyrdom at Caesarea of Palestine in the year 304 during the persecution under the co-emperors Diocletian (284-305) and Maximian (305-311).

Sts Agapius and Thekla were condemned to be eaten by wild beasts. After suffering in this manner, they received their heavenly crowns from Christ.
