Today we commemorate Crescens and Cyril. Crescens was a disciple of the Apostle Paul. He converted many in Gaul through the preaching of the Gospel and served as a bishop in Galatia. He was martyred under Trajan.

Cyril was the Patriarch of Alexander from 412 to 444.He defended orthodox Christology against Nestorius. Gnesiolutheran has some quotes from Cyril on the doctrine of justification.
