Lives of Saints - Nikandros, Bishop of Myra Christianity - Books
If I speak with the languages of men and of angels, but don't have love, I have become sounding brass, or a clanging cymbal.                If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but don't have love, I am nothing.                If I dole out all my goods to feed the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, but don't have love, it profits me nothing.                Love is patient and is kind; love doesn't envy. Love doesn't brag, is not proud,                doesn't behave itself inappropriately, doesn't seek its own way, is not provoked, takes no account of evil; 13:6 doesn't rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth;                bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.                Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will be done away with. Where there are various languages, they will cease. Where there is knowledge, it will be done away with.

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.
