Saint Vincent is the most illustrious of the Martyrs of Spain. Because of his
virtue, he was ordained deacon by Valerius, Bishop of Saragossa, who,
because of his advanced age and an impediment in his speech, commissioned
Vincent to be preacher of the Gospel. In 303, the impious Emperors
Diocletian and Maximian sent Dacian to Spain as governor, with an edict
to persecute the clergy. Saint Vincent was brought with Bishop Valerius
to Valencia; the bishop was sent into exile, but the holy deacon was
tortured on a rack, and after suffering other cruel torments, gave
up his soul into the hands of God on January 22 in the year 304.
