One day Saint Menas came into the town and filled with the Holy Spirit he confessed his faith in Christ.
“My fatherland is Egypt, my name is Menas. I was an officer, but witnessing the worship of idols, I renounced your honours. I now come before you all to proclaim my Christ as the True God, that He may proclaim me as His servant in the Heavenly Kingdom.”
He was then tortured greatly and finally beheaded.
