St. Dionysios the Areopagite, Hieromartyr
Feast Day October 3rd.
St Dionysios is shown in the traditional vestments of an Orthodox bishop. He is blessing the faithful with his right hand and in his left he is holding the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is unlikely that her ever wore these garments since he lived in the apostolic era. He is portrayed this way to symbolize his apostolic ministry.
