St. Armogastes

St. Armogastes lived in the early 400s. He was the servant of the son of King Genseric. When Genseric renounced Christianity and became a pagan once again, he demanded that St. Armogastes also renounce Christianity. St. Armogastes refused to give up his faith, so Genseric tortured him and sent him to work in mines. St. Armogastes is patron saint of torture victims and against poverty.
