Book of Saints – Martyrs of Rome – 2 March


(Saints) (March 2) (3rd century) Although in general the Church enjoyed a respite from persecution under the Emperor Alexander Severus, yet the penal laws were still in force, and not a few Christians were put to death during his reign. Usually, they were such as were denounced in the Provinces. Those who suffered in Rome itself about A.D. 227, under the Prefect Ulpian, are commemorated on March 2. They are registered as “plurimi” (very many).
