Station at the Cemetery at Nymphas; this group of Persian martyrs, consisting of husband, wife, and two sons, were originally buried ad nymphas Catabassi.  They came to Rome under the Emperor Claudius II and visited Christians cast into prison.  The Mass for their feast is very ancient and in excellent liturgical form.sotd thumbnail
