St. Peter the Martyr
(died 1252)

Lord, lay not this sin to their charge.

Two assailants attacked St. Peter and a companion while they were travelling to Milan. The assassins split Peter's head open. His murderer, whose name was Carino, repented and became a Dominican lay brother who was noted for his holiness. Peter's words echo those of St. Stephen.
