Book of Saints – Maro – 15 April


(Saint) Martyr (April 15) (1st century) Together with Saints Eutyches and Victorinus, he shared the exile of the famous Roman lady, Flavia Domitilla, in the Mediterranean Island of Ponza. Recalled to Rome under the Emperor Nerva, the three Saints were ordained priests and became zealous preachers of Christianity. Under Trajan they were arrested and condemned to death as Christians. Eutyches was stabbed, Victorinus was hung head downwards over a sulphur spring, and Maro was beheaded (A.D. 99, about).
