29th November, St Saturninus, Martyr

St Saturninus, Martyr

St. Saturninus was martyred in Rome under Maximian about 300. The Roman Martyrology mentions on the same day another St. Saturninus, bishop, martyred at Toulouse under Decius, about 250.

Laetábitur justus in Dómino, et sperábit in eo: et laudabúntur omnes recti corde. * Exáudi, Deus, oratiónem meam, cum déprecor: a timóre inimíci éripe ánimam meam.
The just shall rejoice in the Lord, and shall hope in Him: and all the upright of heart shall be praised. * Hear, O God, my prayer when I make supplications to Thee: deliver my sould from the fear of the enemy.
(Psalm 63:11,2 from the Introit of Mass)

Deus, qui nos beáti Saturníni Martyris tui concédis natalítia pérfrui: ejus nos tríbue méritis adjuvári.
O God, who grantest us to rejoice in the feast of Thy blessed martyr Saturninus, grant that we may be helped by his merits.
(Collect)
