These saint icons feature the martyr, St. Lawrence. St. Lawrence was one of seven deacons of Rome who were in charge of giving help to the poor and the needy. Lawrence's care for the poor, the ill, and the neglected have led to his patronage of them. During the persecutions of the Roman Empire, he was martyred by being roasted alive.
St. Lawrence was one of seven deacons of Rome who were in charge of giving help to the poor and the needy. Lawrence's care for the poor, the ill, and the neglected have led to his patronage of them. During the persecutions of the Roman Empire he was martyred by being roasted alive.
When a persecution in the reign of the Emperor Valerian broke out, Pope St. Sixtus was condemned to death. As he was led to execution, St. Lawrence followed him weeping, "Father, where are you going without your deacon?" he said. "I am not leaving you, my son," answered the Pope. "in three days you will follow me." Full of joy, St. Lawrence gave to the poor the rest of the money he had on hand and even sold expensive vessels to have more to give away.
The Prefect of Rome, a greedy pagan, thought the Church had a great fortune hidden away. So he ordered St. Lawrence to bring the Church's treasure to him. The Saint said he would, in three days. Then he went through the city and gathered together all the poor and sick people supported by the Church. When he showed them to the Prefect, he said: "This is the Church's treasure!"
In great anger, the Prefect condemned St. Lawrence to a slow, cruel death. The Saint was tied on top of an iron grill over a slow fire that roasted his flesh little by little, but St. Lawrence was burning with so much love of God that he almost did not feel the flames. In fact, God gave him so much strength and joy that he even joked. "Turn me over," he said to the judge. "I'm done on this side!" And just before he died, he said, "It's cooked enough now." Then he prayed that the city of Rome might be converted to Jesus and that the Catholic Faith might spread all over the world. After that, he went to receive the martyr's reward. St. Lawrence's feast day is August 10th.
