Sts. Barachisius and Jonas
They were monks at a monastery in Perisa (modern Iran) and were arrested
during the persecution conducted by Sassanid King Shapur II (r. 309-379). Barachisius and Jonas were
giving spiritual support to other martyrs when they were taken into custody. Refusing to abjure the
faith, Jonas was crushed to death, and his body cut to pieces. Barachisius had brimstone and boiling
pitch poured down his throat.
