Diocletian had St. Sebastian tied to a tree, but the arrows that pierced his strong body failed to kill him. These arrows are still an important symbol of his sainthood. He later died as a result of blunt trauma. Since he was able to endure such incredible punishment, he is often invoked as the Patron of Athletes. It is also known that Archers are also known to pray for him in times of need.
