27 October, The Roman Martyrology

Sexto Kaléndas Novémbris Luna vicésima prima Anno Dómini 2021

The morrow is the eve of the holy Apostles Simon and Jude.
October 27th 2021, the 21st day of the Moon, were born into the better life:

At Avila, in Spain, the holy martyrs Vincent, Sabina, and Christeta, who were first racked until all their joints were loosened, then stones were put upon their heads which were beaten with heavy logs of wood until their brains were burst, and so they finished their testimony under the (Emperor Diocletian and the) President Dacian.
At Thil-Chateau, (in Burgundy, in the third century,) the holy martyr Florence.
In Cappadocia, the holy martyrs Capitolina and Erotheis her handmaiden, who suffered under the Emperor Diocletian.
In Ethiopia, holy Frumentius, first Bishop of that country, who was first a captive there, then was ordained Bishop by holy Athanasius, and spread the Gospel in that country.
Likewise in Ethiopia, the holy King Elesbaan, who, after he had overcome the enemies of Christ in the time of the Emperor Justin, sent his kingly crown to Jerusalem, and made himself a monk in fulfilment of a vow, and so lived until he passed away hence to be ever with the Lord.
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.
