Saints Cosmas & Damian

Saints Cosmas & Damian
Saints Cosmas and Damian were twin brothers born in the third century in Arabia. Not much is known about their lives except that they were well known physicians at the time. They embraced their Christian roots and practiced medicine and surgery without a fee, this attracted many as word of their cures spread. Soon word of this spread to the Emperor Diocletian who ordered their arrest which led to their martyrdom. They are celebrated on their feast day of September 26 as the patron saints of surgeons, physicians, and twins.
