16 June, The Roman Martyrology

Sextodécimo Kaléndas Iúlii Luna nona Anno Dómini 2024

June 16th 2024, the 9th day of the Moon, were born into the better life:

At Besançon, in Gaul, the holy martyrs Ferreolus a Priest and Ferrutio a Deacon, who were sent forth by the blessed Irenaeus, Bishop [of Lyon,] to preach the Word of God, whereafter they were diverse ways tormented and then beheaded under Claudius the judge.
At Tarsus, in Cilicia, under the Emperor Diocletian, the holy martyrs Quiricus and his mother Julitta.
Quiricus was a little boy of three years old when his mother was horribly scourged before the President Alexander, he vehemently wept and lamented her, whereupon he was killed by being dashed against the steps of the judgment-seat. Julitta, after horrid stripes and grievous torments, was beheaded, and so finished her testimony.
At Mainz, the holy martyrs Aureus and his sister Justina, and the others who were at Communion in the Church when they were massacred by the Huns, who were wasting Germany, [in the year 451.]
At Limasol, in Cyprus, holy Tycho, Bishop [of that see,] in the time of the Emperor Theodosius the younger.
At Lyon, [in the year 551,] the blessed Aurelian, Bishop of Arles.
At Nantes, in Brittany, [in the year 310,] the holy Confessor Similian, Bishop [of that see.]
At Meissen, in Germany, [in the year 1106,] holy Benno, Bishop [of that see.]
At the village of La Louvesc, in the Diocese of Vienne, in the Ardèche, [in the year 1640,] the holy Confessor John Francis Regis, of the Society of Jesus, a man of wonderful love and long-suffering in seeking the salvation of souls, whom Pope Clement XII added to the list of the Saints.
In Brabant, [in the year 1246,] the holy Virgin Lutgard.
℣. And elsewhere many other holy martyrs, confessors, and holy virgins.
℟. 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.
