Martyr Marinus of Rome

Commemorated on December 16

The Martyr Marinus was a soldier who suffered in Caesarea of Palestine in the third century. When he was about to be promoted to centurion, he refused to swear the customary oath invoking the pagan gods, or to offer sacrifice to idols. St Marinus was beheaded after cruel tortures, and buried by St Asterius (August 7).
