The Orthodox Church is commemorating St. Theodor Thiron today. During his time,the Roman Emperor Julian Submissive (332 – 363 AD) wanted to restore paganism. As he knew that the Christians held a strict fast for 40 days before East, the emperor decided to disgrace the believers cheating them to eat food of animal origin. He arranged that the city ruler of Constantinopolis disseminates blood from pagan sacrifice rituals all fasting foods on the market, so that the Christians are fooled and blasphemed.
