As St. Alexandra was being brought to her execution, she asked a guard if she could stop and rest. He allowed her to rest and as she leaned against the wall, she died peacefully on April 21, 303.
Two days after St. Alexandra’s death, St. George was beheaded and 630 other people who converted to Christianity while witnessing St. George’s martyrdom were also killed.
A Prayer for Martyred Saints
O Lord, by the sufferings of the Saints, which they endured for thy sake, have compassion and heal all the sufferings of us who implore Thee, who alone art the lover of mankind.
