5 September is the “dukhrono” or Feast of St. Sharbel of Edessa (+105) and his sister St. Babai according to the Syriac Churches.

Mor Sharbel Urhoyo was once the chief pagan priest of Edessa. Their history is recorded in the Syriac document 'The Acts of Sharbel'. During this time, Trajan Ceasar commanded through his governors that all citizens should worship & give offerings to the idols of the deities Nebu & Bel. 

Bishop Barsamya, Priest Tiridath & Deacon Shalula went to Sharbel to express their great displeasure with the ruling, and attempted to convince Sharbel to worship only the one true God. As he listened to them speak, he had a change of heart and repented, he desired to be a Christian. Sharbel and his sister Babai came to Barsamya later at night as promised. They confessed the faith in the Holy Trinity and received baptism. They wore garments suitable for Christians. Many men, women and leaders of the town followed Sharbel’s footsteps and became Christians.

The chief judge Lysanias learning of Sharbel's conversion had him seized from the church and brought to trial. He told him to renounce Christ or face punishment. However, Sharbel would not deny Christ and so underwent extreme persecution. He was beaten, hung upside down, sharp iron combs were dragged into his body while salt and vinegar were applied to his fresh wounds. However, Sharbel remained unfazed by the torture, seeing it as reward for knowing Christ who will provide true life to believers. Without dismay, he continued to say, “Those who are saved by the Cross cannot worship idols of deceit. The created being cannot be worshipped. Only the Creator can be worshipped.” Finally the judge ordered Sharbel to be chopped into pieces and his head sawed off. 

As per the custom of offering drinks to murderers he too was offered wine. He did not accept it, instead he asked for time to pray. He turned to the east and prayed, “Lord Jesus, forgive me for the sins committed against you and for provoking your anger by turning to unholy sacrifice and oblations. Have mercy on me as you have been merciful to the robber. I entered your vineyard at the eleventh hour. Kindly spare me from the last judgement.” Sharbel’s sister Babai said, “May my spirit join you when you reach Christ whom you knowingly believed.” Enraged, the judge ordered her to be executed as well. Thus both St. Sharbel & St. Babai attained the crown of martyrdom. Barsamya the bishop had them entombed in the same place as his own father. 

Mor Sharbel Urhoyo & Mort Babai! Plead for us before God's throne of grace. Amen.
