Sine dominico non possumus! - We cannot live without "Dominicum".  
From goldhands on May 08. 2007

This is the testimony that the 49 Abitene's martyrs (in Tunisia) gave to Christ during the persecution of Diocletianus (304). Without our Eucharistic Sunday's celebration we cannot live. The "Dominicum" - that means all together: "The day of Lord" - "The Risen" - "The site of the celebration", is their unique reason to live; and having celebrated the "Dominicum" they will experience the martyrdom and the death. St. Restituta was one of these, that Sunday on 304. She is the Patron Saint of Ischia we celebrate every year on May 17. Today the beginning of the novena with a procession in Lacco Ameno, the most ancient Christian site of Ischia, where during the 5th century already existed a Christian community and her cult, in the place where St. Restituta was buried.

La testimonianza che i 49 martiri della cittadina africana di Abitene (nell’odierna Tunisia) resero a Cristo durante la persecuzione di Diocleziano nel 304, si può ricondurre tutta a questa confessione di fede: senza la celebrazione eucaristica domenicale non possiamo vivere. Il "Dominicum" - che significa insieme“il Risorto” - il Giorno del Signore” - “la celebrazione dell’Eucaristia” - “il luogo della celebrazione” - è l’unica loro ragion d’essere; e per averlo celebrato vengono torturati e messi a morte. Santa Restituta fu una di loro, quella domenica del 304. È la Patrona di Ischia e noi celebriamo ogni anno il 17 maggio. Oggi è iniziata la novena con una processione in Lacco Ameno, il più antico sito Cristiano di Ischia, dove, durante il V sec. già esisteva una comunità cristiana nel posto dove S. Restituta fu sepolta.
