(Saints) Martyrs (June 9) (4th century) Two aged brothers, Roman citizens, who in the persecution under Diocletian and Maximian bravely confessed their Faith in Christ. They were thrown to the wild beasts in the Amphitheatre, but Almighty God repeated in their behalf the miracle He had worked for Daniel in the lions’ den. They were therefore conducted outside the walls of Rome and there beheaded. This happened in one of the first years of the fourth century. Saints Primus and Felician have ever been in great veneration in the Western Church.
