The townspeople loved and respected him, many even adopted the Christian faith according to the sermons of the saint. One day, King Licinius found out about this and called Theodore to him. There the ruler forced the saint to sacrifice to idols and renounce Christ.

Theodore asked for a delay, and he himself broke the idols. Silver and gold, from which they were made, he distributed to the poor. For this, he was tortured and tortured for a long time, and in the end he was crucified.
