Lives of Saints - Nikandros, Bishop of Myra Christianity - Books
I tell you, my friends, don't be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.                But I will warn you whom you should fear. Fear him, who after he has killed, has power to cast into Gehenna. Yes, I tell you, fear him.                Aren't five sparrows sold for two assaria coins? Not one of them is forgotten by God.                But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Therefore don't be afraid. You are of more value than many sparrows.                I tell you, everyone who confesses me before men, him will the Son of Man also confess before the angels of God;                but he who denies me in the presence of men will be denied in the presence of the angels of God.

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.
