Saint Genesius of Rome’s life story comes from Christian tradition and is affirmed in “The Acts of the Martyrs.” Genesius wrote and acted in a play mocking Christianity to please the emperor Diocletian. He rehearsed for the role by studying Christianity. During the play, God’s grace overcame him and he had an instantaneous conversion while reciting the act of faith. (the Apostles Creed) So instead of mocking the faith, he gave testimony affirming it. Diocletian was enraged and sent Genesius to be tortured and then beheaded.
