St. Laurence, Deacon and Martyr. Feast Day 10th August.
For alternative spelling of Lawrence see 879B in Related Items below.
He has been one of the most honoured martyrs of the Roman Church since the 4th century. Renowned for his alms giving he was one of the seven deacons of Rome martyred circa 258AD during the persecution by the Emperor Valerian. According to tradition, at his arrest, when ordered to hand over the treasures of the Church, he pointed to a group of poor people saying, "Here are the true treasures of the Church."
It is thought more likely that he was beheaded but a strong tradition from the 4th century shows his emblem as a gridiron indicating his form of execution; BAN879 indicates this with flames.
Original artwork by the Benedictine Sisters of Turvey Abbey.
