The Holy Martyrs Processus and Martinian
They were warders in the Roman prison where the Apostles Peter and Paul were held captive. Hearing the words and seeing the mira-cles of these apostles, they were baptised and released the apostles from prison. The apostles left Rome, but the Lord appeared to Peter on the Appian Way. 'Lord, whither goestThou?', asked Peter of Him, and the Lord replied: `I'm going to Rome, to be crucified afresh.' The apostles returned to Rome in shame, where they were arrested and killed; the two courageous martyrs, Processus and Martinian, being beheaded along with Paul.
