27 July, The Roman Martyrology

ante diem vi Kalendas Augustas

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

At Nicomedia, the holy martyr Pantaleon. He was a physician, who was tried by the Emperor Maximian because he believed in Christ, and tormented on the rack, and by scorching with lamps, amid the which things he was comforted by the Lord appearing to him. At last he finished his testimony by the sword. 
Also at Nicomedia, the holy Priest Hermolaus, by whose teaching blessed Pantaleon was brought to the faith. 
Also, the holy brethren Hermippus and Hermocrates, who, after many sufferings, were put to death by Maximian for confessing Christ. 
At Nola, the holy martyrs Felix, Julia, and Jucunda. 
At Biseglia, in Apulia, the holy martyrs Maurus, Bishop [of that see,] Pantaleemon, and Sergius, who suffered under Trajan. 
On the same day are commemorated the holy martyrs whom the tyrant Dunaan caused to be burnt in Yemen, in Arabia, because they believed in Christ. 
At Cordova, in Spain, in the persecution under the Arabs, the holy martyrs George the Deacon, Felix, Aurelius, Natalia, and Liliosa. 
At Ephesus, the Seven Holy Sleepers, Maximian, Malchus, Martinian, Denis, John, Serapian, and Constantine. 
At Auxerre, [in the sixth century,] deceased the blessed Confessor Etherius, Bishop [of that see.] 
At Constantinople, the blessed Virgin Anthusa, who was scourged, under the Emperor Constantine Copronymus, for honouring the holy images, and was sent into exile, where she fell asleep in the Lord. 
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.
