July 2: Saints Processus and Martinian

"Martyrdom of St Processus
and St Martinian"
by Valentin de Boulogne

History

Saint Processus and Saint Martinian were Roman soldiers who were assigned to work in the prison where Saint Peter was jailed. According to legend, when they learned about Jesus from Saint Peter, they believed in Christ, too. Miraculous, water flowed into Peter’s cell and he was able to baptized both Processus and Martinan. Later on, they were both arrested for being Christians, too.

Activity

Today, remember the importance of your own baptism. Look at family photos of everybody’s baptism and talk about how important this sacrament is.
