26 September, The Roman Martyrology


Sexto Kaléndas Octóbris Luna tricésima Anno Dómini 2022

September 26th 2022, the 30th day of the Moon, were born into the better life:

At Nicomedia, the holy martyrs Cyprian and Justina the Virgin. Justina suffered much for Christ's sake under Diocletian the Emperor and Eutholmius the President, and she converted to Christ the warlock Cyprian, who had sought by his magical arts to put her out of her mind, but along with whom she afterwards suffered martyrdom. Their bodies were cast out to be eaten by beasts, but certain Christian sailors took them by night and brought them to Rome, and they were afterwards taken to the church of the Most Holy Saviour, founded by the Emperor Constantine, where they are buried hard by the Baptistery.
At Rome, the holy martyrs Callistratus and forty-nine others, all soldiers. In the persecution under the Emperor Diocletian, Callistratus was sewn up in a leathern sack and cast into the sea, and when, by the help of God, he escaped unharmed, the others were converted to Christ and suffered martyrdom along with him.
Likewise at Rome, (in the year 310,) the holy Confessor Pope Eusebius.
At Bologna, (in the fifth century,) the holy Confessor Eusebius, Bishop (of that see.)
At Brescia, (in the sixth century,) holy Vigilius, Bishop (of that see.)
At Albano, holy Senator.
In the country of Frascati, (at the beginning of the eleventh century,) the blessed Abbot Nilus, a man of great holiness, Founder of the Monastery of Grotta-Ferrata, (of the Italian Congregation of the Order of St. Basil.)
At Citta di Castello, the holy Priest Amantius, famous for the grace of working miracles.
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.
