Saint Cyriacus - Deacon and Martyr (303).
Saint Cyriacus, born of a noble patrician family, embraced the Christian religion and gave all his wealth to the poor. He was ordained a deacon at Rome, under Pope Marcellinus. The barbarous Maximian, in 303, imprisoned and tortured the Saint and finally decapitated with twenty other courageous Christians.
