Lives of Saints - Sts. Eutychlos and Eutychlanos Cassiane Christianity - Books
And if thy hand cause thee to stumble, cut it off: it is good for thee to enter into life maimed, rather than having thy two hands to go into hell, into the unquenchable fire.                where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.                And if thy foot cause thee to stumble, cut it off: it is good for thee to enter into life halt, rather than having thy two feet to be cast into hell.                where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.                And if thine eye cause thee to stumble, cast it out: it is good for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell;                where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

Sts. Eutychlos and Eutychlanos Cassiane
   

Sts. Eutychlos and Eutychlanos Cassiane were brothers of Cretan origin. While young they chose the ascetic life and established themselves in a remote and dry place in southern Crete. Soon Eutychios was appointed Bishop of Gortyn. He was persecuted for being very active and an uncompromising Christian. Later he, his brother and sister were exiled from the hometown. During the exile, they lived in a cave for the rest of their lives. The cave today is referred to by their names. To honour their memory, St. Ioannis the "Xenos" built a Church there. Today their relics are kept at the monastery of Odegetria. We celebrate their memory on August 30 each year.
