St. Mitrius, Martyr
THIS ancient martyr suffered under Dioclesian, at Aix in Provence, and is honoured as principal patron of that city. St. Gregory of Tours1 makes honourable mention of him. His torments were various and dreadful; but a miraculous constancy enabled him to bear them with joy. No authentic acts of his triumph have reached our times.
