Vigília sancti Jacóbi Apóstoli. The Vigil of St. James the Apostle.

Tyri, apud lacum Vulsínium, in Túscia, sanctæ Christínæ, Vírginis et Mártyris. Hæc Virgo, cum patris idóla áurea et argéntea, in Christum credens, comminuísset atque illórum frágmina paupéribus erogásset, ejúsdem patris jussu verbéribus dilaniáta est, aliísque supplíciis diríssime cruciáta, et cum magno saxi póndere in lacum projécta, sed ab Angelo liberáta; deínde, sub álio Júdice, patris sui successóre, acerbióra torménta constánter pértulit; novíssime, sub Juliáno Præside, post fornácem ardéntem, ubi quinque diébus illæsa permánsit, post serpéntes virtúte Christi superátos, martyrii sui cursum abscissióne linguæ et sagittárum infixióne complévit. At Tiro in Tuscany, on Lake Bolsena, St. Christina, virgin and martyr. Because she believed in Christ, and broke up her father’s gold and silver idols to give them to the poor, she was cruelly scourged at his command, subjected to other most severe torments, and thrown with a heavy stone into the lake from which she was drawn out by an angel. Then under another judge, who succeeded her father, she bore courageously still more bitter tortures. Finally, after she had been shut up by the governor Julian in a burning furnace for five days without any injury, after being cured of the sting of serpents, she ended her martyrdom by having her tongue cut out, and being pierced with arrows.
