24th November, St Chrysogonus, Martyr

St Chrysogonus, Martyr

St Chrysogonus, martyr, after having been long in chains was taken to Aquileia, by order of Diocletian, and there beheaded and thrown into the sea. He is mentioned in the Canon of the Mass (first list of saints). In his church at Rome is held the Station on Monday in Passion Week.

In virtute tua, Domine, laetabitur justus: et super salutare tuum exsulatabit vehementer: desiderium animae ejust tribuisti ei. * Quoniam praevenisti eum in benedictionibus dulcedinis: posuisti in capite ejus coronam de lapide pretioso.
In thy strength, O Lord, the just man shall rejoice: and in Thy salvation he shall rejoice exceedingly: Thou hast given him his heart's desire. * For Thou hast gone before him with blessings of sweetness: Thou hast set upon his head a crown of precious stones.
(Psalm 20:2-3,4 from the Introit of Mass)

Adésto, Dómine, supplicatiónibus nostris: ut, qui ex iniquitáte nostra reos nos esse cognóscimus, beáti Chrysógoni Mártyris tui intercessióne liberémur.
Give heed, O Lord, to our supplications: may we, who acknowledge our sinfulness, by the intercession of blessed Chrysogonus, Thy martyr, obtain our deliverance.
