Ss. Faustinus and Jovita

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every year that begins at 12:00am on day 15 of February, repeating indefinitely

Faustinus and Jovita were brothers and zealous professors of the Christian religion which they preached without fear in their city of Brescia while the bishop of that place lay concealed during the persecution.  We can affirm with certainty that their remarkable zeal excited the fury of the heathens against them, and procured them a glorious death for their faith at Brescia, in Lombardy, under the emperor Adrian. Julian, a heathen lord, apprehended them; and the emperor himself passing through Brescia when neither threats nor torments could shake their constancy commanded them to be beheaded. They seem to have suffered about the year 121. The city of Brescia honors them as its chief patrons and possesses their relics.
