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 Tours 1 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.  1
