Martyred Family of Constantinople: Saint Mary and Saint Xenophon were married and the parents of Saint John and Saint Arcadius.   Theirs was a wealthy family of Senatorial rank in 5th century imperial Constantinople, but were known as a Christians who lived simple lives.   To give their sons a good education, Xenophon and Mary sent them to university in Beirut, Phoenicia.   However, their ship wrecked, there was no communication from them, and the couple assumed, naturally, that the young men had died at sea. In reality, John and Arcadius had survived and decided that instead of continuing to Beirut, they were going to follow a calling to religious life and became monks, eventually living in a monastery in Jerusalem.   Years later, Mary and Xenophon made a pilgrimage to Jerusalem – where they encountered their sons.   Grateful to have their family re-united and taking it as a sign, Xenophon and Mary gave up their positions in society in Constantinople, and lived the rest of their lives as a monk and anchoress in Jerusalem.   A few years later, the entire family was martyred together.
They were martyred in 5th century Jerusalem.
