April 27 – what holiday is today in the church calendar
April 27 in the church calendar is the day of memory of Pope Martin I. He was a native of the Tuscan region in Italy. He received a good education, and then entered the clergy of the Church in Rome. When Pope Theodore I died, it was Presbyter Martin who was elected to the throne. He resolutely rebelled against the lies of the Monothelites, which were then supported by Emperor Constans and Patriarch Paul II of Constantinople. Therefore, Pope Martin I, on the orders of the emperor, was tried several times to kill. However, all attempts were in vain.
In the end, Pope Martin I was sent to Chersonese (now the Autonomous Republic of Crimea) into exile. There he died.
