HOLY VOSKIAN PRIESTS

Today, Thursday, February 4, the Armenian Church remembers the Voskian priests—five men who went from Rome to Armenia as ambassadors to the Armenian king, Sanadrook. When in Armenia, they met the Apostle Thaddeus who converted and baptized them. The leader of the five was named Voski. They lived in the mountains as hermits for forty years, after which they preached to the royal court. They were martyred around 107 AD.
