The Story Behind This Icon:

Saint Cyprian was born in Antioch, and lived as a pagan who practiced magic and worshipped demons. When Cyprian was asked to brew a love potion to capture the love of Justina, he tried every demonic trick possible, but failed. It was impossible because Justina was a Christian and had the grace of God upon her. He realized the power of Christ and burned all of his magic books and was baptized. He converted many pagans to Christianity. Justina also lived in Antioch, but turned away from her parents’ paganism and became a Christian at a young age. She dedicated herself to God, spending her time in prayer and fasting. The two were captured and sent to Nicomedia for their faith in God, and were tortured and killed, even converting one of the soldiers present during their martyrdom.

Saints Cyprian and Justina’s feast day is celebrated on October 2.
