Profile

Priest. Missionary bishop. Miracle worker and healer.

Lured to a location near Aquaviva in central Italy with a challenge by pagan priests to prove the power of Christianity over that of idols, Casto and Saint Cassio of Sinuessa were seized, beaten and then thrown into a fire. When they were unharmed, the pagans claimed the two were using magic, pulled them from the fire, dragged them to a pagan temple, and ordered them to offer incense to an idol; when all the pagan priests were in the temple, it collapsed, killing them all and leaving Casto and Cassius untouched. The two bishops were then dragged to Sinuessa where they were stoned and murdered. Martyr.
