Quinto Nonas Mártii. Luna.


Quinto Nonas Mártii.  Luna. The Third Day of March.  The Night of the Moon.

Cæsaréæ, in Palæstína, sanctórum Mártyrum Maríni mílitis, et Astérii Senatóris, in persecutióne Valeriáni. Horum prior, cum accusátus esset a commilitiónibus ut Christiánus, et, interrogátus a Júdice, se Christiánum esse voce claríssima testarétur, martyrii corónam abscissióne cápitis accépit; cumque Astérius corpus Mártyris, cápite truncátum, subjéctis húmeris et substráta veste, qua induebátur, excíperet, honórem quem Martyrii détulit, contínuo et ipse Martyr accépit. At Caesarea in Palestine, during the persecution of Valerian, the holy martyrs Marinus, soldier, and Asterius, senator. The former was examined by the judge on the charge laid against him by his fellow soldiers of being a Christian, and as he admitted the accusation in a firm tone of voice, he was beheaded, and thus received the crown of martyrdom. His mutilated body was taken by Asterius on his own shoulders, and wrapped in the garment which he himself wore. This service at once gained for Asterius the palm of martyrdom as a reward for the honour which he had given to a martyr. Calagúrri, in Hispánia, natális sanctórum Mártyrum Hemitérii et Cheledónii fratrum, qui, cum apud Legiónem, Gallǽciæ urbem, in castris militárent, ambo, exsurgénte persecutiónis procélla, pro confessióne nóminis Christi, Calagúrrim usque profécti, ibi, plúribus torméntis afflícti, martyrio coronáti sunt. At Calahorra in Spain, the birthday of the holy martyrs Hermiterius and Cheledonius, soldiers in the army at Leon, a city of Galicia. Upon the approach of persecution they went to Calahorra in order to confess the name of Christ, and after enduring many torments there, they were crowned with martyrdom. Eódem die pássio sanctórum Felícis, Lucióli, Fortunáti, Márciæ et Sociórum. The same day, the passion of the Saints Felix, Luciolus, Fortunatus, Marcia, and their companions. Item sanctórum mílitum Cleoníci, Eutrópii et Basilísci, qui, in persecutióne Maximiáni, sub Asclepíade Præside, crucis supplício felíciter triumphárunt. Also, the sainted soldiers Cleonicus, Eutropius, and Basiliscus, who gloriously triumphed by death on the cross under the governor Asclepias during the persecution of Maximian. Bríxiæ sancti Titiáni, Epíscopi et Confessóris. At Brescia, St. Titian, bishop and confessor. Bambérgæ sanctæ Cunegúndis Augústæ, quæ, sancto Henríco Primo, Romanórum Imperatóri, nupta, perpétuam virginitátem, ipso annuénte, servávit; ac, bonórum óperum méritis cumuláta, sancto fine quiévit, et post óbitum miráculis cláruit. At Bamberg, Empress St. Cunegunda, who preserved her virginity with the consent of her husband, Emperor Henry I. She completed a life rich in meritorious good works with a holy death, and afterward worked many miracles.

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.
