28 August, The Roman Martyrology


Quinto Kaléndas Septémbris Luna prima Anno Dómini 2022

August 28th 2022, the 1st day of the Moon, were born into the better life:

At Hippo, in Africa, [in the year 430,] the holy Augustine, Bishop of that city, the eminent Doctor of the Church. He was converted to the Catholic faith, and baptized by blessed Bishop Ambrose. He was the stalwart defender of the faith against the Manicheans and other heretics, and, after manifold toil for the Church of God, he passed away to be rewarded in heaven. His body was first brought from his own city to Sardinia, on account of the barbarians, and afterwards by Luitprand, King of the Lombards, -to Pavia, where it is honourably buried.
At Rome, [in the year 116 or 132,] the holy martyr Hermes, a man of illustrious worldly station, who, as is written in the acts of the blessed Pope Alexander, was first committed to prison, and then slain with the sword along with many others, under the judge Aurelian.
At Brioude, in Auvergne, the holy martyr Julian he was a comrade of the blessed Tribune Ferreolus, and secretly served Christ as a soldier but in the persecution under the Emperor Diocletian he was tried by the other soldiers, who horribly murdered him by cutting his throat.
At Constance, the holy martyr Pelagius, who received his crown under the Emperor Numerian and the judge Evilasius.
At Salerno, the holy martyrs Fortunatus, Caius, and Anthes, who were beheaded under the Emperor Diocletian and the Proconsul Leontius.
At Constantinople, [in the year 340,] holy Alexander, [Arch-] Bishop [of that see,] that glorious old man by the power of whose prayer the judgement of God smote Arius so that he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out.
In Saintes, [about the year 450,] the holy Confessor Vivian, Bishop [of that see.]
Also, [about the year 395,] holy Moses the Ethiopian, who from a famous robber became a famous Hermit, converted many other robbers, and took them with him to his monastery.
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.
