Lives of Saints - Nikandros, Bishop of Myra 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.

Nikandros, Bishop of Myra
   

The holy Martyrs Nicander and Hermias were ordained by the holy Apostle Titus. When they had drawn many to the Faith of Christ, they were accused to Libanius, the Count of the city of Myra, where, after suffering many torments, they were enclosed in a tomb alive, and thus surrendered their spirits into the hands of God.

Apolytikion in the Second Tone:
As we celebrate the memory of Thy Prophet Nicander, O Lord, through him we beseech Thee to save our souls.

Kontakion in the Third Tone:
With your preaching as a plough, ye tilled men's souls with your doctrines, for ye had yourselves been sown by Christ's wise husbandman, Titus. Wherefore, ye became you Master's martyric harvest, brought to Him as fruitful sheaves of sacred confession, O Nicander and Hermias, when ye contested unto the death for His sake.
