ST. EUSTATHIOS PLACIDAS: HIS LIFE, SUFFERING AND MARTYRDOM

Author: ST. JOHN THE FORERUNNER GREEK ORTHODOX MONASTERY #: 10142
St. Eustathios was a general in the Roman Army and friend of Emperor Trajan. After being converted to Christianity through a divine vision, he was stripped of imperial honors, imprisoned, and exiled with his wife and two young children. He was separated from his family under the most tragic circumstances, only to be reunited with them in glory thirteen years later, shortly before their martyrdom. St. Eustathios is praised in the hymnography of the Church as a second Job because of his incredible endurance in hardships and patient perseverance in temptations. The life of Saints Eustathios, Theopisti, Agapios and Theopistos are an inspiration and an example for all Christians, especially those who encounter numerous trials in their spiritual life.

Those who knew him have described him as "a living source of God`s wonders," "the embodiment of all Christian virtues," "a miracle of ascetic firmness," "a model archpastor," who had the gift of being able "to see into the human heart and draw it to Christ." His was a life of total surrender to God, a life that offers a glimpse into the mystery of holiness.
