27 September, The Roman Martyrology

Quinto Kaléndas Octóbris Luna vicésima Anno Dómini 2021

September 27th 2021, the 20th day of the Moon, were born into the better life:

At Aegae, in Cilicia, the holy brethren Cosmas and Damian, both martyrs. They were beheaded in the persecution under the Emperor Diocletian, after they had suffered many torments, bonds, and imprisonment, and after God had enabled them to overcome, in the sea and in the fire, crucifixion, stoning, and arrows. Along with them it is stated that there suffered also three more, who were brethren unto them, namely Anthimus, Leontius, and Euprepius.
At Rome, the holy Epicharis, a woman of senatorial rank, who, in the same persecution, was beaten with scourges loaded with lead, and then beheaded.
At Todi, under the same Emperor Diocletian, the holy martyrs Fidentius and Terence.
At Cordova, (in the ninth century,) the holy brethren Adolph and John, both martyrs, who were crowned for Christ's sake in the persecution under the Arabs.

At Milan, holy Caius, Bishop (of that see,) a disciple of the blessed Apostle Barnabas, who suffered much in the persecution under the Emperor Nero, but fell asleep at last in peace.

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.
