On this day according to the ROMAN MARTYROLOGY:
February 21st anno Domini 2018 The 6th Day of Moon were born into the better life:
In Sicily, under the Emperor Diocletian, [fourth century,] seventy-nine holy martyrs, who through diverse torments won the crown of their confession.
At Adrumetum, [Susa] in Africa, [in fourth century,] the holy martyrs Verulus, Secundinus, Syricius, Felix, Servulus, Saturninus, Fortunatus, and sixteen others, who were crowned with martyrdom for their confession of the Catholic faith in the persecution under the Vandals.
At Bethsan, [about 452,] the holy martyr Severian, Bishop of that see.
At Damascus, [in the year 743,] holy Peter Mavimeno. Some Arabs came to see him while he was ill, and to them he said, "Whoever does not embrace the Catholic Christian religion will be damned, as your false prophet Mohammed is," whereupon they killed him.
At Ravenna, [in the year 556,] the holy Confessor Maximian.
At Metz, [about the year 500,] holy Felix, Bishop of that see.
At Brescia, [in the seventh century,] holy Paterius, [twenty-third] Bishop of that see.
V. And elsewhere many other holy martyrs, confessors, and holy virgins.
R. Thanks be to God.

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
