Science of the Saints, 24 March, Saint Artemon

Sainted Artemon, Bishop of Seleucia, was born and lived in Pisidian Seleucia (Asia Minor). He was pious and virtuous, wherefore the holy Apostle Paul, having come to Seleucia, established Saint Artemon as first bishop of this city, as the one most worthy. Saint Artemon wisely nourished the flock entrusted to him and won glory as a comforter of the poor and oppressed. Saint Artemon died in extreme old age.
