The men trembled before the barbarous persecution of the prefect Publio Daciano; But two boys and brothers who attended school, Justus, age seven, and Pastor, age nine, spontaneously appeared in court. Beaten and their bodies whipped, the two lambs encouraged each other to suffer with courage, and both offered their tender necks to the sword. They were natives of Alcalá de Henares, where they suffered, and they are Patrons of the Madrid-Alcalá diocese.

These little children, great in faith, are a powerful example of Christian strength and piety.

V: Justus and Pastor.
A: Pray for us.
