The Feast of St. Polycarp of Smyrna, Bishop and Martyr
is today. There is information on him here.
Hear St. Polycarp's words, when the heathen magistrate urged him to blaspheme Christ: "Eighty and six years," said he, "have I served Him, and He hath never wronged me; and how can I blaspheme my King, who hath saved me?"

Venerable John Henry Newman, Sermons Bearing on Subjects of the Day
