stignatiusofantiochSancti Ignátii, Epíscopi Antiochéni et Mártyris, qui glorióse martyrium consummávit tertiodécimo Kaléndas Januárii. St. Ignatius, bishop of Antioch and martyr, who gloriously suffered martyrdom on the 20th of December. Smyrnæ sancti Piónii, Presbyteri et Mártyris; qui, post apologías pro fide Christiána conscríptas, post squalórem cárceris, ubi multos fratrum ad martyrii tolerántiam suis exhortatiónibus roborávit, tandem, cruciátibus multis vexátus, clavis confíxus et ardénti rogo superpósitus, beátum pro Christo finem sortítus est. Cum ipso autem at álii quíndecim passi sunt. At Smyrna, St. Pionius, priest and martyr, who, after writing apologies for the Catholic faith, and after suffering imprisonment in a loathsome dungeon, where by his exhortations he encouraged many of his brethren even to martyrdom, and after enduring excruciating pains from being pierced with nails and laid on a hot fire, ended happily his life for Christ. With him suffered fifteen others. Ravénnæ sancti Sevéri Epíscopi, qui, ob præclára mérita, signo colúmbæ fuit eléctus. At Ravenna, the holy bishop Severus, whose great virtues deserved that he should be raised to the episcopate, which action was confirmed with the sign of a dove. In civitáte Tricastína, in Gállia, sancti Pauli Epíscopi, cujus vita virtútibus cláruit, et mors pretiósa miráculis commendátur. At Trois-Châteaux in France, St. Paul, bishop, whose life was eminent for virtues, and whose death was made precious by miracles. Apud Kildáriam, in Hibérnia, sanctæ Brígidæ Vírginis, quæ, cum lignum altáris tetigísset in testimónium virginitátis suæ, lignum ipsum statim víride factum est. At Kildare in Ireland, St. Bridget, virgin. Once, when she touched the wood of an altar, it immediately sprouted into life, in testimony of her virginity. Apud Castrum Florentínum, in Etrúria, beátæ Viridiánæ, Vírginis reclúsæ, ex Ordine Vallis Umbrósæ. At Castel-Fiorentino in Tuscany, the blessed virgin Veridiana, a recluse of the Order Vallombrosa.
