The Thirtieth Day of November

Martyrdom_of_andrewAt Patras in Achaia, the birthday of the apostle St. Andrew, who preached the gospel of Christ in Thrace and Sythia.  He was apprehended by the proconsul Aegeas, imprisoned, and severely scourged, and finally, being hung on a cross, he lived two days on it, teaching the people.  Having besought our Lord not to permit him to be taken down from the cross, he was surrounded with a great brightness from heaven, and when the light disappeared he breathed his last. At Rome, the martyrdom of the Saints Castulus and Euprepis. At Constantinople, St. Maura, virgin and martyr. Also, St. Justina, virgin and martyr. At Rome, St. Constantius, confessor, who bravely opposed the Pelagians, and by enduring many injuries from them, gained a place among the holy confessors. At Saintes in France, St. Trojan, bishop and confessor, a man of great sanctity, who shews by many miracles that he lives in heaven, though his body is buried on earth. In Palestine, blessed Zosimus, confessor, who was distinguished for his sanctity and miracles in the time of Emperor Justin.

And elsewhere in divers places, many other holy martyrs, confessors, and holy virgins.
R. Thanks be to God.

Apud Patras, in Achája, natális sancti Andréæ Apóstoli, qui in Thrácia et Scythia sacrum Christi Evangélium prædicávit.  Is, ab Ægéa Procónsule comprehénsus, primum in cárcere clausus est, deínde gravíssime cæsus, ad últimum suspénsus in cruce, in ea pópulum docens bíduo supervíxit; et, rogáto Dómino ne eum síneret de cruce depóni, circúmdatus est magno splendóre de cælo, et, abscedénte póstmodum lúmine, emísit spíritum. Romæ pássio sanctórum Cástuli et Euprépitis. Constantinópoli sanctæ Mauræ, Vírginis et Mártyris. Item sanctæ Justínæ, Vírginis et Mártyris. Romæ sancti Constántii Confessóris, qui, fórtiter Pelagiánis resístens, ab eórum factióne pértulit multa, quæ illum sanctis Confessóribus sociárunt. Apud Sántonas, in Gállia, sancti Trojáni Epíscopi, magnæ sanctitátis viri, qui, sepúltus in terris, se in cælis vívere multis virtútibus maniféstat. In Palæstína beáti Zósimi Confessóris, qui, sub Justíno Imperatóre, sanctitáte et miráculis fuit insígnis.

Et álibi aliórum plurimórum sanctórum Mártyrum et Confessórum, atque sanctárum Vírginum.
R. Deo grátias.
