St. Archmimus (5th century)
Archmimus was a servant of the vandal king, Genseric. When the king demanded him to renounce his faith, he refused. Not wanting to make a martyr of him, the king had him tortured and enslaved in the mines of Byzacena.

Reflections from the Saints

Virtue is nothing without the trial of temptation, for there is no conflict without an enemy, no victory without strife.

Life in Christ: Catechism #2197

The fourth commandment opens the second table of the Decalogue. It shows us the order of charity. God has willed that, after him, we should honor our parents to whom we owe life and who have handed on to us the knowledge of God. We are obliged to honor and respect all those whom God, for our good, has vested with his authority.
