The holy, glorious, all-laudable '''Apostle Junia''' of the [[Apostles#The_Seventy|Seventy]] is commemorated by the Church on [[May 17]] with [[Apostle Andronicus]], and on [[January 4]] with the Seventy.  The Seventy Apostles were chosen and sent forth to preach by [[Christ]] ([[Gospel of Luke |Luke]] 10:1).
Ss. Junia and Andronicus were relatives of the holy [[Apostle Paul]]. St Paul mentions them an [[Epistle]]: ''Salute Andronicus and Junia, my kinsmen and fellow prisoners, who are of note among the Apostles, who also were in Christ, before me'' ([[Romans]] 16:7). The service in honor of these saints states that they suffered martyrdom for Christ.
