Tértio Nonas Aprílis. Luna. The Third Day of April.  The Night of the Moon.

Romæ natális beáti Xysti Primi, Papæ et Mártyris; qui, tempóribus Hadriáni Imperatóris, summa cum laude rexit Ecclésiam, ac demum, sub Antoníno Pio, ut sibi Christum lucrifáceret, libénter mortem sustínuit temporálem. At Rome, the birthday of blessed Pope Sixtus the First, martyr, who ruled the Church with distinction during the reign of Emperor Hadrian, and finally in the reign of Antoninus Pius he gladly accepted temporal death in order to gain Christ for himself. Tauroménii, in Sicília, sancti Pancrátii Epíscopi, qui Christi Evangélium, quod a sancto Petro Apóstolo illuc missus prædicáverat, martyrii sánguine consignávit. At Taormina in Sicily, Bishop St. Pancras, who sealed with a martyr’s blood the Gospel of Christ that the apostle St. Peter had sent him there to preach. Tomis, in Scythia, natális sanctórum Mártyrum Evágrii et Benígni. At Tomis in Scythia, the birthday of the holy martyrs Evagrius and Benignus. Tyri, in Phœnícia, sancti Vulpiáni Mártyris, qui, in persecutióne Maximiáni Galérii, cum áspide et cane insútus cúleo, in mare demérsus fuit. At Tyre, the martyr St. Vulpian, who was sewn up in a sack with a serpent and a dog and drowned in the sea, during the persecution of Maximian Galerius. Thessalonícæ pássio sanctárum Vírginum Agapis et Chióniæ, Diocletiáno Imperatóre, sub quo et sancta Virgo Iréne, eárum soror, póstmodum passúra erat. Ambæ vero, cum Christum negáre nollent, primum in cárcere macerátæ sunt, póstea in ignem missæ, sed a flammis intáctæ, ibi, oratióne ad Dóminum fusa, ánimas reddidérunt. At Thessalonica, the martyrdom of the holy virgins Agape and Chionia, under Emperor Diocletian. Because they would not deny Christ, they were first detained in prison, then cast into the fire where, untouched by the flames, they gave up their souls to their Creator while praying. Their sister Irene had been imprisoned with them, but was to die later. In monastério Medícii, in Bithynia, deposítio sancti Nicétæ Abbátis, qui ob cultum sanctárum Imáginum, sub Leóne Arméno, multa passus est, ac tandem, juxta Constantinópolim, Conféssor quiévit in pace. In the monastery of Medicion in Bithynia, Abbot St. Nicetas, who suffered a great deal for the veneration of sacred images in the time of Leo the Armenian, and then died in peace as a confessor near Constantinople. In Anglia sancti Richárdii, Epíscopi Cicestrénsis, sanctitáte et miraculórum glória conspícui. In England, St. Richard, bishop of Chichester, celebrated for his sanctity and glorious miracles. Eboríaci, in território Meldénsi, sanctæ Burgundofáræ, étiam Faræ nómine appellátæ, Abbatíssæ et Vírginis. At Faremoutiers, in the district of Meaux, St. Burgundofara, also known as St. Fara, abbess and virgin.

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.
