St. Dana of Leuca

An immigrant to Santa Maria di Leuca, Italy who was appointed as a deacon. When the port town was invaded, Dana gathered up the sacred vessels and scriptures and ran inland; he managed to consume the Eucharist to prevent it from being profaned. When he was captured, he was ordered to sacrifice wine to the pagan god Bacchus, But Dana refused and received the crown of martyrdom. His body was cut apart by the sword and cast into the sea.
