Saints of the Day – Thyrsus, Leucius, and Callinicus, Martyrs


Died 251. These three were martyred at Apollonia in Phrygia. Their relics were brought to Constantinople, then to Spain and France. For this reason, Saint Thyrsus had a full office in the Mozarabic liturgy, and he is also patron of the ancient cathedral of Sisteron in the Basses Alpes, France (Benedictines).
