Book of Saints – Secundus and Others

main article for Saint Secundus of AlexandriaArticle

(Saints) Martyrs (May 21) (4th century) When Saint Athanasius was driven by the Arians from his See of Alexandria, the heretic, George, protected by the Emperor Constantius, was intruded in his place. This George forthwith set about persecuting the Catholic Bishops and clergy of Egypt. Secundus and many other priests were scourged to death. Some sixteen Bishops were banished; and a multitude, both of clergy and laity, were savagely maltreated, so that many died of the ill-usage received (A.D. 357). They were rightly honoured as Martyrs.
