Today we remember and give
thanks for Justin, Martyr. Born at the
beginning of the second century, Justin was raised in a pagan family. He was
student of philosophy who converted to the Christian faith and became a teacher
Collect of the Day:
Almighty and everlasting God, you found your martyr Justin wandering from teacher to teacher, searching for the true God. Grant that all who seek for a deeper knowledge of the sublime wisdom of your eternal Word may be found by you, who sent your Son to seek and to save the lost; through Your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
(Treasury of Daily Prayer, 1301)
