Book of Saints – Fuscian, Victorious and Gentian


(December 11) (Saints) Martyrs (3rd century) Fuscian and Victorious were two Apostolic men who according to one account preached the Gospel in Gaul with Saint Denis of Paris. However that may be, they made Terouanne (Saint Omer) the seat of their mission. At Amiens, where Bictius Varus was persecuting the Christians, they lodged with one Gentian, who was desirous of embracing the Faith of Christ. Soon after, they were arrested with their charitable host, and all three died for Christ about A.D. 287. Their bodies now lie in the Cathedral of Amiens, whither they were translated by Saint Honoratus.
