9th August, St Romanus, Martyr

St. Romanus, Martyr

St. Romanus, a soldier, begged St. Laurence to baptize him. This he obtained, and was in turn cruelly beaten and at last beheaded (Roman Martyrology).

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)

Praesta, quaesumus, omnipotens Deus: ut, intercedente beato Romano Martyre tuo, et a cunctis adversitatibus liberemur in corpore, et a pravis cogitationibus mundemur in mente.
Grant we beseech Thee, almighty God, that through the intercession of blessed Romanus, Thy martyr, we may be delivered from all adversities in body, and be purified from all evil thoughts in mind.
