27 June, The Roman Martyrology

ante diem v Kalendas Julias

June 27th anno Domini 2018 The 14th Day of the Moon were born into the better life: 

In Galatia, holy Crescens, the disciple of the blessed Apostle Paul. He made a journey into Gaul, where by the word of his preaching he brought many to believe in Christ. Then he returned home, where he was specially appointed Bishop till the end of his life. He strengthened the Galatians in the work of the Lord, and at last finished his testimony under Trajan. 
At Cordova, [in the fourth century,] the holy martyrs Zoilus and nineteen others. 
At Caesarea, in Palestine, the holy martyr Anectus. In the persecution under Diocletian he exhorted others to martyrdom, and by his prayers caused the idols to fall down wherefore the President Urban caused him to be beaten by ten soldiers, and his hands and feet, and lastly his head, cut off, and so he received the crown of martyrdom. 
At Constantinople, [in the sixth century,] the holy Priest Samson, the harbourer of the poor. 
In the country of Tours, [in the sixth century,] the holy Priest and Confessor John. 
At Varadin, in Hungary, [in the year 1095,] holy King Ladislaw, who is famous for eminent miracles even unto the present day. 
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.
