Before his Martyric torments began, Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ appeared to Saint Panteleimon and strengthened him for these sufferings.

Because he was a Christian, Saint Panteleimon was greatly tortured so he could renounce his faith, but his love for Christ gave him the strength to go through all the terrible tortures, and to be a witness to the love and power of God. Before his Martyric torments began, Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ appeared to Saint Panteleimon and strengthened him for these sufferings.
