AT Rome, St. Aloysius Gonzaga, of the Society of Jesus, most renowned for his contempt of the princely dignity, and the innocence of his life.— Also, at Rome, St. Demetria, virgin, who was crowned with martyrdom under Julian the Apostate. —At Syracuse, in Sicily, the birthday of the holy martyrs Rufinus and Martia.—In Africa, the holy martyrs Cyriacus and Apollinaris.—At Mayence, St. Alban, martyr, who was made worthy of the crown of life, after long labors and severe combats. —The same day, St. Eusebius, bishop of Samosata, who, in the time of the Arian emperor Constantius, disguised himself under a military dress and visited the churches of God, to confirm them in the faith. By Valens he was banished into Thrace, but when peace was restored to the Church in the reign of Theodosius, he was recalled. As he again visited the churches, an Arian woman struck him with a tile, which fractured his skull and made him a martyr.—At Iconium, in Lycaonia, St. Terentius, bishop and martyr.—At Pavia, St. Urciscenus, bishop and confessor.—At Tongres, St. Martin, bishop.—In the diocese of Evreux, St. Leutfrid, abbot.
