Book of Saints – Narcissus and Crescentio

main article for Saint Narcissus and Crescentio of RomeArticle

(Saints) Martyrs (September 17) (3rd century) These Saints were among the victims of the Decian persecution continued under the Emperor Valerian (A.D. 254261). Narcissus was a Christian in whose house many of the Faithful had found a refuge, and one of those charged by Saint Laurence with the distribution of the moneys of the Church to the poor. Crescentio was a blind man, to whom by a miracle Saint Laurence gave back his sight. The little we know of either is drawn from the Acts of Saint Laurence compiled from oral tradition.
