Three of a group of 50 Christians who were imprisoned in a pen of snakes, scorpions, and then martyred, all during the persecutions of Decius.
God of all creation, you gave your martyrs the privilege of being counted among the saints who gave their lives in faithful witness to the gospel.
May their prayers give us the courage to share with them the cup of suffering and to rise to eternal glory. We ask this through our Lord Jesus ist, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
