The holy acolyte and martyr Tarcisius suffered at Rome [while] conveying the Blessed Sacrament to the imprisoned confessors of the faith... he was stopped by a fierce pagan mob, who pressed him to show them what he was carrying. Mindful of our Lord's injunction not to give that which is holy to dogs, nor to cast pearls before swine, the brave boy stoutly resisted their entreaties, and soon fell beneath a shower of blows and stones. His constancy was rewarded. When his persecutors searched his lifeless remains they could not find, either in his hands or in his garments, any vestige of the Blessed Sacrament, which God had miraculously preserved from desecration. The heathen fled in terror at this sign of Divine power, and the Christians, taking up the body, buried it in the cemetery of Callistus on August 15th [257 AD]. The tomb was afterwards decorated with an inscription by Pope Damasus, in which he states that S Tarcisius, 'carrying the Sacraments of Christ chose rather to suffer death than to betray the heavenly Body to profane mad dogs.'
