18 January, The Roman Martyrology

Quintodécimo Kaléndas Februárii Luna quinta décima Anno Dómini 2022

On the morrow we keep the Feast of the See of the holy Apostle Peter wherein he first sat at Rome.
January 18th 2022, the 15th day of the Moon, were born into the better life:

At Rome, the holy Virgin and martyr Prisca, who after suffering many torments was crowned with martyrdom under the Emperor Claudius.
In Pontus, the holy soldiers Moseus and Ammonius, who were first condemned to penal servitude in the mines and then burnt, (under the Emperor Decius.) Likewise in Pontus, (probably in the year 196,) the holy martyr Athenogenes the Old, called the Theologian, who, when he was about to suffer martyrdom by fire, joyfully sang an hymn, which also he left unto his disciples in writing.
At Tours, in Gaul, (in the year 498,) holy Volusian, Bishop of that see, who was taken prisoner by the Goths, and while still in exile gave up his soul to God.
There also, (in the year 593,) the holy hermit (of Tourance,) Leobard, who was a bright light of self-denial and lowliness.
In Brittany, holy Deicola, Abbot (of Lure,) (in the year 625,) a disciple of blessed Columbanus.
At Como, (in the year 581,) the holy virgin Liberata.
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.
