St. Donatus of Muenstereifel (c. 140 – c. 173), also known as St. Donatus of Arezzo, was a Christian martyr who lived in the 2nd century. He was a Roman soldier who converted to Christianity and openly professed his faith despite the persecution of Christians at the time. St. Donatus was imprisoned and tortured for his refusal to renounce his Christian beliefs. He remained steadfast in his faith, even performing miracles during his captivity. According to tradition, he was eventually beheaded for his unwavering devotion to Christ. St. Donatus is venerated as a martyr and a model of courage and faithfulness in the face of persecution. His relics are enshrined in the Church of St. Donatus in Muenstereifel, Germany, where he is revered as the patron saint of the town. The faithful continue to honor his memory and seek his intercession in times of adversity.
