O glorious martyrs and saints Crispin and Crispiniano, who in order to earn a living, when they came to preach the truth of Christ, dedicated themselves to the noble work of shoemakers, and not content with helping the poor, they also consoled them from their spiritual congolas. . I entrust myself to your intercession to obtain favors and graces from God, help me to sanctify my work, my home and with it my whole life. I implore your protection so that what is necessary is not lacking in my house and I can praise God with all that I am. May the blood that they shed for being faithful to the Gospel of Jesus Christ be for my example of dedication and sacrifice. Amen
Saint Crispin and Saint Crispiniano are the patron saints of shoemakers, saddle makers and tanners. His party is October 25.
The story goes that they were possibly Roman brothers of distinguished descent. They were missionaries of the Christian Faith a la Gaul (known today as France) and chose the city of Soissons for this work. They worked with their own hands making shoes and earned enough from their trade to support themselves and also help the poor. During the Roman persecution, they were brought before the Emperor Maximian Herculean. At first Maximiano sought to persuade them of their faith by making promises and threats. But they replied: “Your threats do not terrify us because Christ is our life and death is our reward. Your rank and possessions are nothing to us, because we have long before this sacrificed to the taste for the cause of Christ and the annealing of what we did. If you could recognize and love Christ you would give not only all the treasures of this life, but even the glory of your crown itself so that through the exercise of compassion you can gain eternal life. ” When Maximiano saw that his efforts were of no avail, he delivered Crispin and Crispiniano into the hands of Governor Rictiovaro, a cruel persecutor of the Christians. Under Rictiovaro’s order, they were stretched out on the rack, their tongues were cut out and punches were driven under their fingernails. A mill can was then secured on the neck of each; and were thrown into the Aisne River, but were able to swim to the opposite bank of the river. In the same way, they did not suffer damage from a great fire in which Rictiovaro in desperation sought his own death. Some time later the two saints were beheaded under Maximilian on October 25, 285 or 286 after J.C. This is how those Church martyrs became the patron saints of shoemakers, saddle makers, and tanners.
