29 September, The Roman Martyrology

Tértio Kaléndas Octóbris Luna undecima Anno Domini 2020

On the morrow is made the worshipful Commemoration of the Blessed Archangel Michael on the which day was consecrated in his name the church upon Mount Gargano, mean as to building, but filled with power from heaven.
September 29th 2020, the 11th day of the Moon, were born into the better life:

In Thrace, the holy martyrs Eutychius, Plautus, and Heraclea.
In Persia, the holy martyr Gudelia, who had turned many to Christ. Forasmuch as she would not worship the sun and the fire, Sapor the king put her to many torments and caused the skin to be plucked from her head, and her to be fastened to a post, where she won the last victory.
Likewise in Persia, the holy martyrs Dadas, kinsman of King Sapor, Casdoa his wife, and Gabdelas their son, who were stripped of their worldly goods, tormented with diverse sufferings, imprisoned for a long time, and at last beheaded.
In Armenia, under the King Tiridates, the holy virgins Ripsimis and her Companions, all martyrs.
At Auxerre, (in the fifth century,) the holy martyr Fraternus, Bishop (of that see.)
At Pontecorvo, near by Aquino, (in the twelfth century,) the holy Confessor Grimwald the Priest.
In Palestine, (in the sixth century,) the holy hermit Quiriacus.
V. And elsewhere many other holy martyrs, confessors, and holy virgins.

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.
