30 December

AT Spoleto, the birthday of the holy martyrs Sabinus, bishop, Exuperantius and Marcellus, deacons; also of Venustian, governor, with his wife and sons, under the emperor Maximian. Marcellus and Exuperantius were first racked, then severely beaten with rods; afterwards being mangled with iron hooks, and burned in the sides, they terminated their martyrdom. Not long after, Venustian was put to the sword with his wife and sons. St. Sabinus, after having his hands cut off, and being a long time confined in prison, was scourged to death. The martyrdom of these saints is commemorated on the same day, although it occurred at different times.—At Alexandria, the holy martyrs Mansuetus, Severus, Appian, Donatus, Honorius, and their companions. —At Thessalonica, St. Anysia, martyr.—In the same place, St. Anysius, bishop of that city.—At Milan, St. Eugene, bishop and confessor.—At Ravenna, St. Liberius, bishop.—At Aquila, in Abruzzo, St. Rainerius, bishop.

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

Thanks be to God.
