September 4: The Holy Hieromartyr Babylas and Those with Him

The Holy Hieromartyr Babylas lived in the third century, during the reign of Emperor Numerian, and he was the Bishop of Antioch. He shepherded his flock with sacrificial love and he was also made worthy of martyrdom, which is why he is called Hieromartyr. He did not hesitate to rebuke the emperor Numerian for the crimes he committed, and this brought on the occasion for his martyrdom.
