Saint Mark the New Martyr, June 5

 Μᾶρκον ἔχεις καύχημα Χίος μέγα, ἠδέ τε σεπτόν·
Λαμπρὰν τεύξαντα, αἵματι Μαρτυρίου,
Οὔνεκα Κύριον αἴνει ὄλβια, ὅς τά σοι δῶκε.
Saint Mark was born in Smyrna. His father was from Thessaloniki and his name was Hatzi Konstantis, and his mother was from Smyrna and her name was Maria. He himself married in the year 1788 AD. But he got involved in Ephesus with another Christian woman and one day you were arrested on your own. The saint and his mistress denied their faith before the judge.

Markos, quickly feeling remorse for his adultery, went with tears and confessed to a spiritual one, who made it easier for them to leave for Smyrna. From there, after boarding a ship bound for Trieste, in 1792 AD, they disembarked in Venice, where they were anointed with Holy Myrrh, received communion and were married. Later, Mark, after wandering in various places, decided to witness for the Christian faith and returned to Chios and from there to Ephesus.
In this city he met his spiritual one and confessed his desire, but his spiritual one prevented him, due to the reconstruction of the new Church and the recent martyrdom of Saint George the New Martyr, the Turks were very angry and would demolish this Church. Whenever the witness was forced to return to Chios.

There, after praying and receiving communion of the holy mysteries, he went to the criterion, where he courageously preached his Christian faith. Despite the flattery of the judge, the witness remained unconvinced. Then they put him in prison, where he suffered cruel and merciless torture. When they led him to the judge a second time, Mark again confessed Christ. The enraged Turks threw him down the stairs and imprisoned him again, where this time they tortured him even more horribly. But Mark, instead of grumbling, sang with delight.

The Christians of Chios, when they learned of the patience of the martyr, began to fast and pray to God, to strengthen him in his martyrdom. Markus, after having once again received communion of the holy mysteries in prison, confessed Christ for the third time before the judge. Finally they took him to the place of execution and beheaded him on June 5, 1801 AD, a Wednesday at 02:00 in the morning in Chios. Then all the Christians of Chios sang thanksgiving hymns to God for the brilliant witness of the New Martyr Markos.
