A Story Of Saint Lawrence

Lawrence was 1 of 7 deacons of the Church in Rome and was martyred in the year 258. He was a student of Pope Sixtus II and when the Emperor Valerian started persecuting Christians the Pope was one of the first to be seized. Lawrence wanted to go with the Holy Father, but instead stayed back to distribute the treasures of the Church to the poor before he himself was taken away to be martyred.This story can encourage us to be obedient even in the midst of persecution.
