Byzantine Hand Painted Icon of Saint Alexander of Constantinople.
Saint Alexander was Patriarch of Constantinople and exercised his duties with great piety. He took part in the First Ecumenical Council of Nicaea for the condemnation of Arianism, and for this reason he made tours in Macedonia, Thrace and the rest of Greece.
He passed away peacefully in 337 AD.
Aflame with love for Christ, ye took His yoke upon yourselves; and since ye emulated well His life upon the earth, ye were also made partakers of His great glory. Now, O Fathers Alexander the divinely-wise, wondrous John, and glorious Paul, ye stand before His throne; wherefore, fervently intercede with Him to save our souls.
