Holy Haralampij was bishop from Magnesia, Tessalia. A wise old man. He lived 113 years and he devoted all his life to preaching of the Christ. He died in the name of Christ in the second century, during the reign of emperor Septimius Severus.
In the 100 year from the St. Ivan, he was appointed for bishop in Smirna. St. Polikarpus was burnt alive on the city square in Smirna in the year 115. Called by his opponents to give up from Christ, he answered: “I have been serving to Christ for 86 years and I have done nothing wrong. How can I deny my King who saved me on the cross.”
