In the 2nd century, Saint Hyacinth, chamberlain of the emperor Trajan, refused to participate in a feast in honor of the idols, resisting the torture ordered by Trajan. In prison, he refused to eat idolatrous foods, living by his faith and prayer. After several days of fasting, he experienced a celestial light in his cell. Surrounded by angels, he died in prison. His body was thrown to wild beasts, but his relics were recovered by a priest and a widow. After many years, the relics were transported to Caesarea, where miracles occurred. The life of Saint Hyacinthe testifies to his unwavering faith in the face of persecution and his courage in defending the Christian faith.
