Saint Acacio is the saint invoked to relieve those headaches and migrations.añas that we usually suffer on multiple occasions and that are extremely annoying. To him, we pray for quick relief.
This saint was a Roman general from the time of Hadrian and Antoninus who suffered a serious defeat. But one day an angel appeared to him who, in the name of the God of Christians, predicted victory if he believed in him.
Thus he overcame and converted to the Christian faith. Saint Acacius is, along with Saint Mucio, the only authentic martyr of Byzantium, in ancient times.
He was arrested for being a Christian, tortured, and then taken to Byzantium where he was flogged and beheaded. But he never renounced his Christian faith and that is why today he belongs to the group of the 14 Holy Helpers.
Acacio, a saint of immense faith and miracles
The dates of Acacio's birth and death are unknown today. But it is said that he lived at the time of the persecution of Decius in the third century and that he was summoned before the tribunal of Marciano to prove his faith.
Knowing that he was a Christian, they condemned him to death, after suffering a long martyrdom and considerable suffering. And it is that Acacio was famous for his brilliant doctrinal teaching and for performing important miracles.
In fact, it is said that the crown of thorns, which is a symbol of Saint Acacio, was part of his torture and that they later tried to stone him and his companions. But miraculously, the stones did not reach them and they returned towards those who had thrown them.
After seven days in another prison, he was transferred to Byzantium covered in wounds. And during this journey, a consoling voice was heard from the clouds:
"Acacio stand firm".
The soldiers heard it and were terrified and many fellow prisoners, who heard the voice, embraced the Christian faith.
Finally, after the angels healed his wounds, he was beheaded.
