Saints Nereus, Achilleus and Pancras

Nereus and Achilleus were Roman soldiers who worked under Emperor Trajan. They both converted to the Christian faith. They left the army and became followers of Jesus. Around the year 304, Nereus and Achilleus were exiled from Rome to the island of Terracina. There they were beheaded. Pancras was a fourteen year old orphan who converted to Christianity. He was arrested for being a Christian and refused to give up his faith and hence beheaded. Runtime : 1:34 mins
