Feast of St. Nicanor

Little is known about the life of St. Nicanor, one of the original 7 deacons. He may have died with Stephen, or been martyred later on the isle of Cypress. Either way, Nicanor's devotion to the Lord and his willingness to serve should stand as an example to modern deacons, and to all who seek to follow Jesus. St. Nicanor, protodeacon and martyr, pray for us!
