  • Saints Zoe and their children Kyriakos and Theodoulos lived in the 2nd AD. century in the years of the emperor Hadrian (117 - 138 AD). His origin was from Pamphylia and they belonged as slaves to the Roman Catallus and his wife Petradia, who forbade the Christian family to pray and praise its creator God. Other times they were ordered to carry out works that were contrary to the spirit of the Gospel.

    In their Synaxari it is mentioned that Agia Zoi went at night to the guard who guarded the palace of the lords and told him to go to sleep, because he was tired and he replaced him in his duties. But outside the gates of the mansion were dogs who devoured anyone who went to ask for help and good fortune. The Holy Life took bread given to her for the daily maintenance of her family, threw some to the dogs to be silent, and distributed the rest to the poor, telling them: “Become Christians, servants of Christ, for He alone is His Savior . of the world ".

    When, in 125 AD, Catallus had a son, he wanted all his slaves to celebrate the event. So he ordered a common table for everyone to taste plenty of idols and wine. Esperos and his family were limited to dry eating. The Roman lord noticed their attitude and ordered them to eat by force. But all the members of the family refused and stated that they were sorry that this time they would not obey their master.

    Enraged, Catallus ordered a large furnace to be lit and, after setting it on fire, threw the four witnesses inside. However, when they opened the kiln in the morning, they found all four witnesses dead, but without their remains being burned. The leader of life and death bestowed upon them incorruption and heavenly glory.

    A temple to the Martyr Life was built by the emperor Justinian (527 - 565 AD), near the temple of St. Anna in the Second of Constantinople. King Basil I (867 - 886 AD) rebuilt it from the ground up because it had fallen.

    It celebrates on May 2 of each year.
