St. Absadah
Absadah was a Christian priest and martyr.
Feast day: January 19
He was born near Behnesa, Egypt. He was a priest to a small congregation in his village. Upon the start of the Diocletian Persecution, he locked himself in his house for safety. Later, he recounted a vision of Jesus appearing before him; he voluntarily came before the court, and was sent to Alexandria. In Alexandria, he was visited by Jules D'acfahs.
His death sentence was to be burnt alive. However, he was executed by beheading. It was performed outside the walls of the city. He was buried at Cairo.
