St. Sebastian Martyr

A soldier of the imperial army from Narbonne (Gaul) or Milan (according to St. Ambrose), he was martyred for the Faith at Rome during the reign of Emperor Diocletian.
His burial place at the Cemetery "ad Catacumbas" along the old Appian Way is distinguished by a continuous cult down the centuries.
The Roman liturgy has always accorded him a privileged place. Iconography depicts him as a martyr, pierced by arrows. He is invoked for healing from both physical and spiritual wounds.


O Lord, grant us the spirit of fortitude, so that guided by the example of the martyr St. Sebastian we may learn to bear witness to the Christian Faith and patiently support the sufferings of life. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
