SAINT OF THE DAY
Feast Day: July 21
St.Victor was a soldier
in the Roman army at Marseilles when he was hailed before the prefects, Asterius and Eutychius, who sent him to Emperor Maximian for his exhortations to Christians to be firm in their faith in the face of an impending visit by the Emperor.
He was dragged through the streets, racked & imprisoned (he converted three guards, Alexander, Felician, and Longinus while in prison).
He was again tortured after the guards were beheaded when it was discovered he had converted them to Christianity.
When he refused to offer incense(an aromatic substance which is largely employed for purposes of religious worship) to Jupiter, he was crushed in a millstone and beheaded.
His tomb became one of the most popular pilgrimage centers in Gaul. His feast day is July 21st.
