IN Africa, the holy martyrs Victorian, proconsul of Carthage, and two brothers, of Aquaregia. Also two merchants, named Frementius, who, bishop Victor Africanus tells us, were subjected to most atrocious torments for their courageous confession of the Catholic faith, and gloriously crowned under the Arian king Hunneric, during the persecution of the Vandals.—Also in Africa, St. Fidelis, martyr.— In the same country, St. Felix, and twenty others.—At Caesarea, in Palestine, the holy martyrs Nicon, and twenty-nine others.—Also, the crowning of the holy martyrs Domitius, Pelagia, Aquila, Eparchius, and Theodosia.—At Lima, in Peru, the archbishop St. Turibius, through whose labors faith and ecclesiastical discipline were diffused through America.— At Antioch, St. Theodulus, priest.—At Caesarea, St. Julian, confessor.—In Campania, St. Benedict, a monk, who was shut up by the Goths in a burning furnace, but was the next day found uninjured.— At Barcelona, in Spain, St. Joseph Oriol, priest and beneficiary of the church of St. Mary of the Kings. He was remarkable for his love of poverty and his charity towards the needy and the infirm. Distinguished both in life and after death by the working of miracles, he was placed in the number of the Saints by Pius X.

And elsewhere many other holy martyrs, confessors and holy virgins.

Thanks be to God.
