Almsgiving saint betrayed a pauper whom he was helping

Martyr Sabinus, a divine root, an unfading blossom

saint Sabinus

He was a Christian and a municipal official in the Roman Empire. He lived a pious life and gave alms to the needy. However, he had to abandon his municipal service and go into hiding in a remote village when Emperor Diocletian of Rome unleashed the vicious persecution of Christians throughout the empire.

A pauper whom he was helping with food and money revealed his whereabouts to the authorities for a reward of two pieces of gold. The persecutors captured him and six other Christians. They were imprisoned, tortured and put to death by drowning in the Nine in 287.
