AT Rome, on Mount Coelius, the holy martyrs John and Paul, brothers. The former was steward, the other secretary of the virgin Constantia, daughter of the emperor Constantine. Afterwards, under Julian the Apostate, they received the palm of martyrdom by being beheaded.—At Trent, St. Vigilius, bishop, who, whilst he endeavored to root out the remains of idolatry, was overwhelmed with a shower of stones by cruel and barbarous men, and thus endured martyrdom for the name of Christ.—At Cordova, in Spain, under the Saracen king Abderahman, the birthday of St. Pelagius, a young man who gloriously consummated his martyrdom for the faith by having his flesh torn to pieces with iron pincers.— At Valenciennes, the holy martyrs Salvius, bishop of Angouleme, and Superius.—Also, the comemmoration of St. Anthelmus, bishop of Belley.—In Poitou, St. Maxentius, priest and confessor, renowned for miracles.—At Thessalonica, St. David, hermit.—The same day, St. Perseveranda, virgin.
And elsewhere many other holy martyrs, confessors and holy virgins.
Thanks be to God.
