Today, April 28, we celebrate Saint Vital of Ravenna who was a religious and Christian martyr.
On this day the famous Basilica of San Vital de Ravenna was dedicated to God, in which San Vital de Ravenna is venerated together with the martyrs Valeria, Santos Gervasio and Protasio, and Saint Ursicinus of Ravennawho were martyred for defending the Christian faith.
San Vital de Ravenna is also known as Saint Vidal of Ravenna.
Saint Vital of Ravenna and Saint Valeria are the parents of Saints Gervasio and Protasio.
Saint Vital of Ravenna was executed because after Saint Ursicinus of Ravenna was executed he retrieved his body and buried it.
Valeria tried to recover the body of her husband Vital, but since she could not do so, she went to Milan, but on the way she met some pagans who invited her to make sacrifices to the gods with her.
When she refused, she was sent to prison where she died three days after Vital.
While Santos Gervasio and Protasio died later equally martyred.
There is no more information about the life and work of Saint Vital of Ravenna.
Although what is a fact is that its celebration takes place on the day 28th of April.
