1 October, The Roman Martyrology

Kaléndas Octóbris Luna vicésima quarta Anno Dómini 2021

October 1st 2021, the 24th day of the Moon, were born into the better life:

The holy Confessor Remy, (15th) Archbishop of Reims, in Gaul, who converted the French nation to Christ, baptized their king Chlodwig, and administered to him the Sacraments of the faith. Remy passed many years in his labors as Bishop, and was famous for his holiness and for the power of working miracles. He died upon the 13th day of January, (in the year 533,) but his feast is kept upon the 1st day of October, which is that of the translation of his sacred body.
At Rome, the blessed martyrs Aretas, (in the year 852,) and five hundred and four others.
At Tomi, in Pontus, the holy martyrs Priscus, Crescens, and Evagrius.
At Lisbon, in Portugal, the holy martyrs Verissimus and his sisters Maxima and Julia, who suffered in the persecution under the Emperor Diocletian.
At Tournai, in Hainaut, the holy martyr Piaton, a Priest, who came from Rome to Gaul to preach along with the blessed Quinctinus and his Companions, and afterwards finished his testimony by martyrdom, in the persecution under the Emperor Maximian, and so passed away to be ever with the Lord.
At Thessalonica, under the same Emperor Maximian, the holy martyr Domninus.
At Gent, the holy Confessor Bavo, (in the seventh century.)
At Orvieto, the holy Priest and Confessor Severus.
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.
