Saint Gregory Thaumaturge - Bishop, confessor (270).
Saint Gregory was born in the Pont, of distinguished parents who were still engaged in the superstitions of paganism. He recognized the unity of God and was becoming disposed to accept the truths of Christianity. Before his death he asked how many pagans still remained in the city, and was told there were only seventeen.
