Saint Mina turned down an offer to sacrifice to pagan gods, and received a most cruel torment, after which he was beheaded in 304. The body of the holy martyr was ordered to be burned. Christians gathered at night, from the fire, the surviving remnants of the martyr and put his name on the temple which had been built to honor the end of persecution in the Great Mines of suffering and death.
