St Vincent

22Jan14

Vincent, a deacon in Saragossa, died a martyr in Valencia, Spain, with his bishop Valerius, after having undergone torture c. AD 304.  Like Saint Lawrence of Rome, Vincent offered a perfect model of service in the Church.  As he was the bishop’s minister in offering sacrifice and in governing the community, this deacon also accompanied him at the supreme hour of witness.
