Holy Sebastien was born in Narbonne about year 260. Intrepid defender of the faith and the Church, he was, on the order of Diocletian, transpierced arrows. Left for death, a Christian lady collected him and he was providentially cured.
He went from himself to present himself to Diocletian by saying to him that Jesus had saved him. But Diocletian, insensitive with the softness of the new religion, made trail Holy Sebastien in the circus and made he strike to blows of sticks. Thus, on January 20th, 288, the heart of Holy Sebastien went to the sky to receive the crown of the elected officials.
One calls upon Holy Sebastien against the plague of the war and to be preserved poliomyelitis.
Lord our God, let you bend by our prayers and our offerings in the honor of Holy Sebastien and deliver us of all kinds of dangers by the intercession of your happy martyr. We request some from you by NR. – S. J. – C. Amen.
Holy Sebastien deliver us, by your prayers and your help, of the contagious diseases, especially of the poliomyelitis, and the plague of the war.
Celestial father, throw the eyes on your soft Child who suffered so much for us. Consider, Seigneur, which is that which suffers, and for which he suffers.
It is Jesus-Christ, your innocent son, who suffers to repurchase me, me your slave, cover of sins. That which is the source of the life, was let lead to the torment like a lamb, and obeying until death, agreed to die of dead cruelest. Your Son that you eternally generated of your substance condescended to take on him all my weaknesses. Forgive us, my God, our faults and our weaknesses. Amen.
