Romæ, via Appia, sancti Tharsícii Acolythi, quem Pagáni, cum inveníssent Córporis Christi Sacraménta portántem, cœpérunt disquírere quid géreret.

Christiáni autem collegérunt Mártyris corpus, et in cœmetério Callísti honorifice sepeliérunt. At Rome, on the Appian Way, St. Tarsicius, acolyte. The pagans accosted him as he was carrying the Sacrament of Christ’s Body, and began to inquire what it was. But he judged it an unworthy thing to cast pearls before swine. They therefore beat him with sticks and stones until he expired. The sacrilegious searchers examined his body, but found no vestige of the Sacrament of Christ, either in his hands or in his clothes. The Christians took up the body of the martyr, and buried it reverently in the cemetery of Callistus.
