Antiochíæ Cáthedra sancti Petri Apóstoli, ubi primum discípuli cognomináti sunt Christiáni. The Chair of St. Peter at Antioch, where the disciples were first called Christians. Favéntiæ, in Æmília, natális sancti Petri Damiáni, Cardinális atque Epíscopi Ostiénsis et Confessóris, ex Ordine Camaldulénsi, doctrína et sanctitáte célebris, quem Leo Papa Duodécimus Doctórem universális Ecclésiæ declarávit. Ipsíus autem festum sequénti die celebrátur. At Faenza in Emilia, the birthday of St. Peter Damian, cardinal bishop of Ostia and confessor. He was a Camaldolese monk, famous for his learning and sanctity, whom Pope Leo XII declared a doctor of the universal Church. His feast is celebrated tomorrow. Salamínæ, in Cypro, sancti Aristiónis, qui (ut mox memorándus Pápias testátur) fuit unus de septuagínta duóbus Christi discípulis. At Salamis in Cyprus, St. Aristio, who (says Papias, the next to be mentioned) was one of the seventy-two disciples of Christ. Hierápoli, in Phrygia, beáti Pápiæ, ejúsdem civitátis Epíscopi, qui sancti Joánnis Senióris audítor, Polycárpi autem sodális fuit. At Hierapolis in Phrygia, blessed Papias, bishop of that city, who was a companion of Polycarp and a disciple of St. John. In Arábia commemorátio plurimórum sanctórum Mártyrum, qui, sub Galério Maximiáno Imperatóre, sævíssime cæsi sunt. In Arabia, the commemoration of many holy martyrs who were barbarously put to death under Emperor Galerius Maximian. Alexandríæ sancti Abílii Epíscopi, qui, secúndus post beátum Marcum, factus ejúsdem civitátis Epíscopus, sacerdótium virtúte conspícuus ministrávit. At Alexandria, St. Abilias, bishop, who was the second shepherd of that city after St. Mark, and who administered his charge with eminent piety. Viénnæ, in Gállia, sancti Paschásii Epíscopi, eruditióne et morum sanctitáte præclári.

Ipsíus corpus, mirabíliter incorrúptum, suávem spirans odórem et crebris miráculis clarum, ibídem magno cum honóre cólitur. At Cortona in Tuscany, St. Margaret of the Third Order of St. Francis. By means of commendable penance and fruitful tears, she wiped away the stains of her previous life. Her body miraculously remained incorrupt for more than four centuries, giving forth a sweet odour, and producing frequent miracles. It is honoured in that place with great devotion.

Et álibi aliórum plurimórum sanctórum Mártyrum et Confessórum, atque sanctárum Vírginum. And elsewhere in divers places, many other holy martyrs, confessors, and holy virgins. R. Deo grátias. R. Thanks be to God.
