Saint for the Day - October 25 - Sts. Crispin &
These two glorious
martyrs came from Rome to preach the Faith in Gaul
toward the middle of the third century. Fixing their
residence at Soissons, they instructed many in the
Faith of Christ, which they preached publicly in the
day, and at night they worked at making shoes,
though they are said to have been nobly born, and
brothers. The infidels listened to their
instructions, and were astonished at the example of
their lives, especially of their charity,
disinterestedness, heavenly piety, and contempt of
glory and all earthly things; and the effect was the
conversion of many to the Catholic faith.
The brothers had continued their employment several
years when a complaint was lodged against them. The
emperor, to gratify their accusers and give way to
his savage cruel, gave orders that they should be
convened before Biotin's Varus, the most implacable
enemy of the Catholics. The martyrs were patient
and constant under the most cruel torments, and
finished their course by the sword about the year
