SS. Socrates and Stephen, Martyrs

THEIR names are illustrious in the British Martyrologies. They suffered during the persecution of Dioclesian. Many churches in Wales were formerly dedicated to their memory; and they are thought to have glorified God by their death in that part of Britain. See Wilson’s English Martyrology, the Roman Martyrology, and Britannia Sancta.  1
