St. Polycarp, bishop and martyr, pray for those suffering in pain. May they be drawn near to Christ. “Stand fast, therefore, in this conduct and follow the example of the Lord, ‘firm and unchangeable in faith, lovers of the brotherhood, loving each other, united in truth,’ helping each other with the mildness of the Lord, despising no man” (Polycarp, Letter to the Philippians). Polycarp is pictured with his crown of life, promised to him by his Lord.
