30 May, The Roman Martyrology

ante diem iii Kalendas Junias

May 30th anno Domini 2018 The 15th Day of Moon . 
Upon this same 30th day of May, were born into the better life:

At Rome, upon the Aurelian Way, the holy martyr Pope Felix, who was crowned with martyrdom under the Emperor Aurelian. 
At Torre, in Sardinia, [in the persecution under the Emperor Hadrian,] the holy martyrs Gabinus and Crispulus. 
At Antioch, [in the fourth century,] holy Sycus and Palatinus, who suffered many torments for Christ's Name's sake. 
At Ravenna, [in the fifth century,] the holy Confessor Exuperantius, Bishop [of that see.] 
At Pavia, [in the seventh century,] the holy Anastasius, Bishop [of that see.] 
At Caesarea, in Cappadocia, the holy Basil and Emmelia his wife, father and mother of holy Basil the Great. In the time of the Emperor Galerius Maximian they were banished, and dwelt in the wilderness in Pontus; but they fell asleep in peace after the persecution was over, leaving their children inheritors of their goodness. 
At Seville, in Spain, [in the year 1252,] holy Ferdinand III, King of Castille and Leon, who on account of his excelling graces was surnamed the Saint. Illustrious for his zeal in the propagation of the faith, after conquering the Moors, he left an earthly kingdom to inherit in blessedness a kingdom eternal in heaven. 
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.
