21 October

IN Cyprus, the birthday of the holy abbot Hilarion. His life, full of virtues and miracles, was written by St. Jerome.—At Cologne, the birthday of the Saints Ursula and her companions, who gained the martyrs' crown by being massacred by the Huns for the Christian religion and their constancy in keeping their virginity. Many of their bodies were deposited at Cologne.—At Ostia, St. Asterius, priest and martyr, who suffered under the emperor Alexander, as we read in the Acts of the blessed pope Callistus.—At Nicomedia, the birthday of the Saints Dasius, Zoticus, Caius, and twelve other soldiers, who, after suffering various torments, were submerged in the sea.—At Maronia, near Antioch, in Syria, St. Malchus, monk.—At Lyons, St. Viator, deacon of blessed Justus, bishop of that city.—At Laon, St. Cilinia, mother of blessed Remigius, bishop of Rheims.

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

Thanks be to God.
