St.Tarcisius is said to have been about 12 years old when he was beaten to death by a mob rather than deliver to them the Blessed Sacrament, which he was carrying to prisoners awaiting martyrdom under Valerian. He went instead of a priest because he was less recognizable. Legend is, that in spite of killing Tarcisius, those thugs were unable to pry open his hands to get control of the Body of Christ. Only later, when his body was returned to a priest, could the Eucharist be easily taken from his dead hands.
