Catholic History: The Story Of Saints Cosmas And Damian

Damian and Cosmas are Catholic saints who were born in Arabia and had become popular for their gifted skills in the scientific medicine. As Christians, they were very charitable and never charged money for their services. At Egaea in Cilicia where they resided, they enjoyed many favors from people, they were able to bring many people to the Catholic faith. 

They helped in treating the ill people through the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and they never asked for payment when ever they helped in aiding the needy, this was because our Lord Jesus Christ had earlier given a commandment to his disciples where he said, freely have you received and freely shall you give. During the year 283, a prosecution against Christian faithfuls broke out and they were both arrested together with their three brothers. The prosecutors tortured them and later beheaded them, since their death, many miraculous divine intervention have been attributed to the two saints. Both of these saints are known as the patron saints of Physicians and Pharmacists.
