Commemoration of St. Abursam

flowerToday, 25 February, we commemorate the memory of St. Abursam. He is also known as Abursam bar Shabuhr, since his father was Shabuhr.

We have very little information on this particular saint, but we do know that he was an early disciple of Mar Mani and was called to be among the first twelve Apostles of the Holy Prophet.

Mar Abursam is specifically mentioned in the Manichaean Holy Book at Acts of Mar Mani 17:8, 11.
