ST. VICTORINUS
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2015

Feast day: February 24

Not much is known about the life and history St. Victorinus, but we do know that he died in 284 A.D. as a martyr with companions. He was a citizen of Corinth, Greece, and was exiled with a group of fellow Christians to Egypt during the persecutions under Emperor Numerian. Victorinus and the others had been exiled in 249 and had been living in Egypt. They were arrested again under Governor Sabinus, and were brutally tortured, and finally executed at Diospolis.
