St. Sebastian (died c. 288) was a Roman soldier and secret Christian. He dedicated himself to aiding Christians who were being persecuted. Once found out, he was sentenced to die. This was during the broad and bloody persecution of Diocletian. Tied to a tree, Sebastian was shot with many arrows and left for dead. However, a Roman Christian Lady by the name if Irene rescued him and nursed him back to health. Once healed, he determined to confront Diocletian for his cruelty to Christians. Doing so led to his true martyrdom ... Sebastian was clubbed to death and his body thrown into the sewers of Rome. He appeared to another Christian lady and asked her to retrieve his body, which she did. Thus we have true relics of St. Sebastian.
