Almighty God, who didst call Fabian to be a faithful pastor and servant of thy people, and to lay down his life in witness to thy Son: Grant that we, strengthened by his example and aided by his prayers, may in times of trial and persecution remain steadfast in faith and endurance, for the sake of him who laid down his life for us all, Jesus Christ our Savior; who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
San Fabian – the lay man who was popularly acclaimed as Pope. Saint Cyprian described Fabian as an “incomparable” man whose glory in death matched the holiness and purity of his life.
