Saint Lawrence on the Grill

Lawrence turning his eyes to the tyrant, with great constancy and divine valor, said: "Look, disgrace, that one part of my body is roasted: turn it that the other be roasted; and you can eat of my seasoned meats, and not of the treasures of the Church, which are already guarded in the treasury of heaven, whence the hands of the poor carried them."

La Leyenda de Oro, II, Madrid: Librería Española, 1853, 497.
