Sts. Varus, Martyr and Cleopatra

St Varus was an officer in the Roman army in Egypt, a secret Christian, who frequently visited a group of imprisoned Christians, supplying their every need. He greatly admired their courage, feeling he would never himself have the strength to bear torture. However, through the prayers of these Christians, he finally gained courage and offered himself as a sacrifice along with them.

Saint Cleopatra (died 319 or 327) was a Christian saint who lived between the 3rd century and 4th century. She is venerated in the Catholic Church, Oriental Orthodoxy and Eastern Orthodoxy.
Cleopatra originally came from a village called Edra near Mount Tabor in Lower Galilee.
She was a contemporary of the holy martyr Saint Varus and had witnessed his suffering and execution.
