This Treasure Chest comic was originally sourced from The Catholic University of America Archives. I have cropped, cleaned up and enhanced it using some or all of the following: XnView for Windows (great freeware program), MS Paint and Office 2010. When the Archive pages are of poor quality, which averages about 3-4 pages a comic, I have replaced with pages from my collection, providing I have a copy that will not be damaged due to scanning.

Synopsis: Early in the third century, Caligula had ordered the torture and murder of all Christians who refused to renounce Christ and worship Roman gods. His order had gone forth to all the conquered provinces that were now ruled by the Roman Emperor. Quirinus was a Bishop and did not like running from the Romans whenever they came around looking for Christians, so he stood up to them and was arrested. He was offered life, if he worshipped Roman gods, or death. He chose death. They tied a stone around his neck and threw him in the river. In the early 5th century, his relics were taken to Rome.
