Eastern Orthodox Church, Eastern Catholic Churches
Feast December 11

The martyr Mirax (7th. century) was raised by Christian parents in the city of Tanis, Egypt. He renounced his faith to enter the service of the amir, to the great grief of his family.[1] Mirax's parents resorted to prayer with great devotion for the redemption of their son.

Mirax, returned to his family and after much counsel decided to publicly declare his return to the Christian faith.

Consequently, Saint Mirax was tortured, beheaded, and his body cast into the sea.

Saint Mirax is celebrated by the Eastern Christian Churches on 11 December.[1]
