St. Eustace and Companions
edit_button


Double (1954 Calendar): September 20

St. Eustace was a distinguished Roman officer. He owed his conversion to the vision of a stag with a crucifix between its antlers, seen by him while he was hunting. His wife and their two sons became Christians at the same time. In about the year 120 AD, St. Eustace and his wife and two children, after undergoing many cruel tortures, were martyred for having refused to offer sacrifice to false gods.

Collect:

O God, who granted us the grace to celebrate the birthday of Your blessed martyrs Eustace and companions, grant that we may also share their eternal happiness in heaven. Through our Lord . . .

Hi: Now I am confused: is St Eustace the same saint as St Hubert (name ?)? A side chapel in the chuch I go to is called St Hubert, and there is a stained glass window with picture of saint and a stag with cross between antlers etc.
Thank you !
