At Nicomedia, the passion of St Pantaleon, a physician, who for the faith of Christ was imprisoned by the Emperor Maximian and tortured by the punishment of the rack and by burning with torches; but amidst these things he was refreshed by the Lord appearing to him. At last he ended his martyrdom by swordstroke.

Ad Laudes ant. Qui odit ánimam suam in hoc mundo, in vitam ætérnam custódit eam.
Præsta, quǽsumus, omnípotens Deus: ut, intercedénte beáto Pantaleóne Mártyre tuo, et a cunctis adversitátibus liberémur in córpore, et a pravis cogitatiónibus mundémur in mente. Per Dóminum.
