A St. report: St. Vincent......by Rebecca

St. Vincent was born in Saragossa, Spain. He studied and preached for the Bishop (who had a speech impediment). Vincent and Bishop Valerius were sentenced to a lengthy imprisonment for their faith during the persecution of Diocletian in the third century. The Roman Governor had Bishop Valerius put to death while Vincent was tortured to death. The governor had the body hidden, but the Christians found it soon after. They had him placed in an honored grave in the year 304.

This report is a requirement for Rebecca's religious studies.
