In Constantinople the Saint went through a period of penal servitude before being tortured and imprisoned yet again. While Constantine was in prison a [[priest]] visited him and, seeing his young age, told him that he could arrange his ransom by the Constantinopolitan Christians.
Constantine, ready to die for his Lord, refused the priest's offer, telling him that the Theotokos herself had told him of his imminent [[martyr]]dom. The next day Constantine was sentenced to hanging because of his conversion to Christianity. The Saint-Martyr was hung on [[June2June 2]], 1819.
