Readings of the Day
St Vincent of Sarragosa
Today, 22 January, is the feast of St Vincent who was born in Huesca and became a deacon of the church of Saragossa (Zaragoza). He was tortured to death in Valencia, in the persecution of Diocletian. After his death, his cult spread rapidly through the Roman Empire.
This is a detail from a reredos in the Dominican nuns' monastery in Salamanca.
