Quarto Kaléndas Ianuárii Luna tertia Anno Domini 2019
December 29th 2019, the 3rd day of the Moon, were born into the better life:
At Canterbury, in
England, the holy martyr Thomas, Archbishop of that see, who for his
contending for righteousness and for the privileges of the Church, was
smitten with the sword in his own cathedral by a band of wicked men, and
so passed away to be with Christ (in the year 1170).
At Jerusalem, holy David, the King and Prophet (in the year of the world 2950).
At Arles, holy
Trophimus, of whom St. Paul maketh mention in writing unto Timothy. He
was ordained bishop by this same Apostle Paul, and was the first who was
sent to Arles to preach the Gospel of Christ, and it was a spring, as
holy Pope Zosimus writeth, whence streams of faith ran into all Gaul.
At Rome, the holy martyrs Callistus, Felix, and Boniface.
In Africa, the holy martyrs Dominic, Victor, Primian, Lybosus, Saturninus, Crescentius, Secundus, and Honoratus.
At Vienne, in Gaul, holy Crescens, the disciple of the blessed Apostle Paul and the first bishop of the said city.
At Constantinople, holy Marcellus (of Apamea) Abbot (of the Accemeti in the year 485 or 486 in that city).
At Hiesmes, in the time
of King Childebert, the holy confessor Evroul, Abbot (of the monastery
of Ouche, in the diocese of Lisieux, in Normandy. He was born at Bayeux
in 517, founded the Abbey of Ouche and became a monk in 567, and died on
December 29, 596).
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.
