Sts. Protase and Hyacinth, Martyrs

The Roman Martyrs Protase and Hyacinth were, according to Pope St. Damasus, brothers who were martyred separately (doubtless in 303/304). They were buried in the cemetery of Basilla on the Old Salarian Way. In 1845, the burial place of St. Hyacinth was found intact after 15 centuries. He seemed to have died by fire. And an inscription of St. Protase (but no tomb) was found nearby.

The Acts of these Martyrs are included in those of St. Eugenia and are spurious. They state that Eugenia, a Christian daughter of the prefect of Egypt, fled from her house with Protase and Hyacinth, her slaves. She converted her family and others. The Roman lady Basilla was converted by the Martyrs and all three were beheaded together.

PRAYER: Lord, may the triumph of Your Martyrs Protase and Hyacinth fill us with joy, their example increase our faith, and their prayers renew our courage. Amen.
