Today our church honors the memory of the Hieromartyrs Anthimos bishop of Nicomedia (†302), Aristionos bishop of Alexandria and Neomartyr Polydoros of New Ephesus of Cyprus (†1794).

Saint Polydoros the New Martyr was born in the 18th century in Nicosia within the walls, in the parish of Michael the Archangel, of Trypiotis. Raised by pious parents, he was taught the sacred letters of the Church. Afterwards, he traveled to many countries as a salesman.

In some fun, drunk as he was, he denied Christianity and betrayed his faith. When he came to himself, he realized his error, and in humiliation he bitterly repented. He confessed and announced his desire to witness for the resurrected Christ. After many prayers he arrived in New Ephesus and in front of the Mufti he confessed his faith in Christ, as a result of which he testified by hanging.

Repentance and return to the right Christian attitude is a characteristic of the humble person. The determined good disposition of man to correct his mistake, is forgiven by the philanthropist Jesus Christ and receives honor and grace, since it activates the gifts of holy Baptism and holy Anointing. These gifts, after a person receives them, remain indelible in his psychosomatic entity.

The newly built magnificent church of the holy neomartyr Polydoros in Kaimakli celebrates today.
