Friends of the Rosary:
Today is the Memorial Day of St. Lawrence.
He is venerated as one of the patrons of Rome, along with Sts. Peter and Paul.
He was the last of the seven deacons of Rome to die.
He was martyred on August 10, 258 during the persecution of the emperor Valerian along with many other members of the Roman clergy.
Jesus, I Trust In You!
St. Lawrence, Pray for Us!
