Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ

“But many that are first will be last, and (the) last will be first.”

LAST WILL BE FIRST pppas0552

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark 10:28-31.

Peter began to say to Jesus, “We have given up everything and followed you.”
Jesus said, “Amen, I say to you, there is no one who has given up house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands for my sake and for the sake of the gospel
who will not receive a hundred times more now in this present age: houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and eternal life in the age to come.”
But many that are first will be last, and (the) last will be first.”

SAINTS DONATIAN and ROGATIAN
Martyrs
(c. 287)

        Here lived at Nantes (France) an illustrious young nobleman  named Donatian, who, having received the holy Sacrament of Regeneration,  led a most edifying life, and strove with much zeal to convert others  to faith in Christ.

        His elder brother, Rogatian, was not able to resist the  moving example of his piety and the force of his discourses, and desired  to be baptized. But the bishop having withdrawn and concealed himself  for fear of the persecution, he was not able to receive that sacrament,  but was shortly after baptized in his blood; for he declared himself a  Christian at a time when to embrace that sacred profession was to become  a candidate for martyrdom.

        Donatian was impeached for professing himself a Christian,  and for having withdrawn others, particularly his brother, from the  worship of the gods. Donatian was therefore apprehended, and having  boldly confessed Christ before the governor, was cast into prison and  loaded with irons. Rogatian was also brought before the prefect, who  endeavored first to gain him by flattering speeches, but Ending him  inflexible, sent him to prison with his brother.

        Rogatian grieved that he had not been able to receive the  Sacrament of Baptism, and prayed that the kiss of peace which his  brother gave him might supply it. Donatian also prayed for him that his  faith might procure for him the effect of Baptism, and the effusion of  his blood that of the Sacrament of Confirmation.

        They passed that night together in fervent prayer. They were  the next day called for again by the prefect, to whom they declared that  they were ready to suffer for the name of Christ whatever torments were  prepared for them. By the order of the inhuman judge they were first  stretched on the rack, afterwards their hands were pierced with lanced,  and lastly cut off, about the year 287.
