Station at St. Anastasia

Tuesday of the First Week in Lent.
Station at St. Anastasia.
(S. Anastasis.)

At the end of the Via S. Teodoro, just below the Palatine,
is the large and ancient church dedicated to Saint Anastasia.
It was built in the fourth century
and reduced to its present form by Pope Urban VIII in 1636.
St. Anastasia was a holy Roman widow of illustrious birth
who suffered a cruel martyrdom at Aquileia
in the persecution of Diocletian, A.D. 304.
Her feast falls on Christmas Day and she is commemorated
in the second of the three Masses.

Ascendat ad te, Domine, preces nostrae:
et ab Ecclesia tua cunctam repelle nequitiam.
Per Dominum.

Let us pray.
May our prayers ascend to Thee, O Lord:
and driver away all wickedness from Thy Church.
Through our Lord.
