Saint for the Day - December 30 - St. Sabinus &
The cruel edicts of
Diocletian and Maximin against the Catholics being
published in the year 303, Sabinus, Bishop of
Assisium, and several of his clergy, were
apprehended and kept in custody till Venustianus,
the Governor of Etruria and Umbria, came thither.
Upon his arrival in that city he caused the hands of
Sabinus, who had made a glorious confession of his
Faith before him, to be cut off; and his two
deacons, Marcellus and Exuperantius, to be scourged,
beaten with clubs, and torn with iron nails, under
which torments they both expired.
Sabinus is said to have cured a blind boy, and a
weakness in the eyes of Venustianus himself, who was
thereupon converted, and afterward beheaded for the
Faith. Lucius, his successor, commanded Sabinus to
be beaten to death with clubs at Spoleto. The martyr
was buried a mile from that city, but his relics
have been since translated to FaŽnza.
