St. Quirinus of Rome, martyred on the Via Appia
Quirinus was a Roman tribune who was charged with executing the Christians Alexander, Eventius, and Theodulus, arrested under Trajan. Instead, converted by the miracles worked by the saints, he converted and was baptized, along with his daughter Balbina, and became a martyr for the Faith.
