St. Vincent and Anastasius
January 22, 2025
|Recurring Event (See all)
An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day 22 of January, repeating indefinitely
The Church celebrates together the anniversaries of two martyrs: the great Spanish deacon, St. Vincent, burned to death at Saragossa in 304, and a Persian monk, St. Anastasius, beheaded in 628. Two famous churches at Rome are dedicated to them, some of their relics being kept in Tre Fontane, the traditional site of St. Paul’s martyrdom. At one time St. Vincent was almost as well known as the other great martyr deacons, St. Stephen and St. Laurence, and his name is still coupled with theirs in the Litany of the Saints.
