11th January, St Hyginus, Pope and Martyr

St. Hyginus, Pope and Martyr.

“At Rome, holy death of St. Hyginus, pope, who generously suffered martyrdom during the persecution of the emperor Hadrian “ (Roman Martyrology) perhaps about 542.

Statuit ei Dominus testamentum pacis, et principem fecit eum: ut sit illi sacerdotii dignitas in aeternum. * Memento, Domine, David, et omnis mansuetudinis ejus.
The Lord made to him a covenant of peace, and made him a prince: that the dignity of the priesthood should be to him for ever. * O Lord, remember David: and all his meekness.
(Ecclesiasticus 45:30 and Psalm 131:1 from the Introit of Mass)

Have regard to our weakness, O almighty God, and since the burden of our deeds is grievous to us, grant that the glorious intercession of blessed Hyginus Thy martyr and bishop may protect us.
(Collect)
