27 May, The Roman Martyrology

ante diem vi Kalendas Junias

On the morrow we keep the feast of holy Bede the Venerable, Confessor and Doctor of the Church, very famous for his holiness and learning. 
May 27th anno Domini 2018 The 12th Day of the Moon were born into the better life: 

The Feast of the most holy and undivided Trinity, and the Octave of Pentecost.
The holy martyr Pope John I, who was sent for to Ravenna by Theodoric, the Arian King of Italy, and there cast into prison on account of his orthodox faith, where he suffered long, and at length died. 
At Dorostorum, in Bulgaria, the blessed Julius, a retired Roman soldier, who was arrested in the time of the Emperor Alexander Severus, and brought before the President Maximus, in whose presence he denounced the idols, and steadfastly confessed the Name of Christ, and so was put to death. 
At Sora, the holy Virgin and martyr Restituta. She fought the fight of faith under the Emperor Aurelian and the pro-Consul Agathius. She conquered the attacks of devils, the cajolery of her kinsfolk, and the cruelty of the tormentors. At last she was beheaded, along with other Christians, and so received the crown of martyrdom. 
[At Thelus,] in Artois, [in the seventh century,] the holy martyr Ranulph. 
At Orange, in Gaul, [in the first century,] holy Eutropius, Bishop [of that see,] famous for his graces and wondrous works. 
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 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.
