Sts Cosmas and Damian are commemorated in the Orthodox Church on November 1.
“Unmercenaries and wonderworkers, they were brothers in the flesh and in the spirt, born somewhere in Asia of a pagan father and a Christian mother. After their father’s death, their mother Theodota devoted all her time and energy to the bringing up of her sons as true Christians. God helped her, and her sons grew as two choice fruits and as two holy lamps. They were skilled in medicine and ministered to the sick without payment, and so fulfilled Christ’s command: ‘Freely you have received; freely give’ (Matt. 10:8).” (Bishop Nikolai Velimirovic, The Prologue from Orchid, p 143)
