Martyr Synetus of Rome

Commemorated on December 12

The Holy Martyr Synetus (the name is derived from the Greek word meaning "man of reason") was a Roman by birth, and was a reader in the Roman Church under Pope Sixtus (257-258). He was subjected to torture, and was beheaded for his brave confession of faith in the time of the emperor Aurelian (270-275).
