22 July, The Roman Martyrology

Undécimo Kaléndas Augústi Luna duodécima Anno Dómini 2021

July 22nd 2021, the 12th day of the Moon, were born into the better life:

At Marseilles, holy Mary Magdalen, out of whom the Lord cast seven devils, and who was made worthy to be the first to see this same Saviour after that He was risen from the dead.
At Philippi, holy Syntyche, of whom mention is made by the blessed Apostle Paul.
At Ancyra, in Galatia, the holy martyr Plato, [in the year 304.]
Under the Vicar Agrippinus he was cut with stripes, pronged with iron nails, and tormented with other dire sorts of torments, then at last beheaded, and so gave up his soul unconquered to God. The miracles wrought by him in the succouring of prisoners are attested by the acts of the Second Council of Nice.
In Cyprus, the holy Praetor Theophilus. The Arabs strove to make him deny Christ, but as neither bribery nor threats could bend him, they slew him with the sword, [in the year 790.]
At Antioch, holy Cyril, Bishop [of that see,] famous for his teaching and holiness, [in the year 300.]
In Auvergne, the holy Abbot Menelaus, [about the year 700, Restorer of the Abbey of Menat, in the Diocese of Clermont.]
In the Monastery of the Blandijnberg, in Gent in Flanders, holy Wandregisilus [St. Wandrille], Abbot of Fontenelle, [in the year 667, the founder of several monasteries.]
At Lisbon, the holy Confessor Laurence of Brindisi, Minister-General of the Order of Capuchin Friars Minors of St. Francis. He was famous for his preaching of the word of God, and for his hard work for God's glory, and the Supreme Pontiff Leo XIII enrolled his name among those of the saints.
At Bethshan, in Palestine, the holy Earl Joseph, [about the year 366.]
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.
