(Saints) Martyrs (November 18) (4th century) Saint Romanus was a zealous Catholic of Antioch in Syria who, in the persecution under the Emperors Diocletian and Galerius, appears to have incited his fellow Christians to resist by force the Imperial Officials charged to desecrate and destroy their churches. For this, he paid with his life (A.D. 304). A little boy, Barula by name, for persisting that there is only One God, shared his happy lot.
