Martyrdom of Saint Lawrence of Rome
Lawrence of Rome

August 10, 2024

Today, Christians celebrate Saint Lawrence of Rome. He died as a martyr on a grill (hot coal) in 258 in Rome. Guard of the Church's treasures, he refused to hand them over to the Roman Empire, and instead distributed them to the poor and sick. He sent the Holy Chalice to his parents which is today in the Cathedral of Valencia. #mythology #myth #legend #calendar #August 10 #SaintLaurent #Christianity #SaintChalice
