Book of Saints – Faustinus and Jovita

[Saint Jovita and Saint Faustinus]Article

(Saints) Martyrs (February 15) (2nd century) Two brothers, nobly born, and zealous professors of the Christian Faith, which they boldly preached to their fellow-citizens of Brescia (Lombardy) at a time of heathen fury such that even their Bishop had sought concealment. They were at length arrested by the authorities, and it is said that the Emperor Hadrian himself, after arguing with them, ordered them to be beheaded (A.D. 121). The City of Brescia possesses their relics and venerates them as its chief Patrons.
