Saint Secundus of AstiArticle

(Saint) Martyr (March 29) (2nd century) A young man of Asti in Piedmont, converted and instructed in the Christian religion by Saints Calocerus and Marcianus. Suspicion was drawn upon him by the care he bestowed to secure the reverent interment of the latter Martyr; and he was made to share the prison of the former. In due course, he was brought to trial as a Christian and, after sentence, put to the torture and beheaded (A.D. 134, about).
