SS. Protus and Hyacinth, Martyrs
After having been cruelly scourged, these two brothers were beheaded and took their places in the army of Martyrs (Alleluia). This was at Rome about A.D. 260 under Valerian and Gallian.
Salus autem justorum a Domino: et protector eorum est in tempore tribulationis. * Noli aemulari in malignantibus: neque zelaveris facientes iniquitatem.
But the salvation of the just if from the Lord: and He is their protector in the time of trouble. * Be not emulous of evildoers; nor envy them that work iniquity.
(Psalm 36:39,1 from the Introit of Mass)
Beatorum Martyrum tuorum Proti et Hyacinthi nos, Domine, foveat pretiosa confessio: et pia jugiter intercessio tueatur.
Lord, let the glorious confession of Thy blessed martyrs Protus and Hyacinth strengthen us, and let their loving intercession continually shield us. Through our Lord.
