IN Calabria, St. Bruno, confessor, founder of the Carthusian Order.—At Laodicea, the blessed bishop and martyr Sagar, one of the first disciples of the apostle St. Paul.—At Capua, the birthday of the holy martyrs Marcellus, Castus, Æmilius, and Saturninus.—At Agen, in France, the birthday of St. Faith, virgin and martyr, whose example encouraged blessed Caprasius so much that he happily terminated his combat by martyrdom.—Also, St. Erotis, martyr, who, being inflamed with the love of Christ, triumphed over the violence of the flames. —At Treves, the commemoration of almost numberless martyrs, who were put to death for the faith in various manners, under the governor Rictiovarus, in the persecution of Diocletian.—At Auxerre, St. Romanus, bishop and martyr.—At Oderzo, St. Magnus, bishop, whose body rests at Venice.—At Naples, the decease of St. Mary Frances of the Five Wounds of Our Lord, a nun of the Third Order of St. Francis. On account of her reputation for virtues and the working of miracles, she was placed among the holy virgins by Pius IX.

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

Thanks be to God.
