26 October, The Roman Martyrology

Séptimo Kaléndas Novémbris Luna vicésima Anno Dómini 2021

October 26th 2021, the 20th day of the Moon, was born into the better life:

At Rome, the holy martyr, Pope Evaristus, who dyed the Church of God with his blood under the Emperor Hadrian.
In Africa, the holy martyrs Rogatian the Priest and Felicissimus, who were crowned with a glorious martyrdom in the persecution under the Emperors Valerian and Gallienus. Holy Cyprian writeth of them in his epistle unto the Confessors.
At Nicomedia, (in the persecution under the Emperor Decius,) the holy martyrs Lucian, Florius, and their Companions.
On the same day, holy Quod-Vult-Deus, Bishop of Carthage, whom the Arian king Genseric embarked along with his clergy in unseaworthy ships without oars or sails, but beyond all hope he arrived at Naples and there died in exile as a Confessor.
At Narbonne, the holy Confessor Rusticus, Bishop (of that see,) who enlightened the times of the Emperors Valentinian and Leo.
At Salerno, (in the seventh century,) holy Gaudiosus, Bishop (of that see.)
At Pavia, (in the year 1229,) holy Fulke, Bishop (of that see.)
At Hildesheim, in Saxony, the holy Confessor Bernward, Bishop (of that see,) whose name Celestine III numbered with those of the Saints.
Also (at Policastro, in the sixth century,) the holy Sub-deacon Quadragesimus, who raised a dead man to life, (as is related by the blessed Pope Gregory.)
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.
