Natalis sancti Petri de Moróno, Confessóris, qui ex Anachoréta Summus Póntifex creátus, dictus est Cælestínus Quintus.

He later abdicated the pontificate, and led a religious life in solitude, where, renowned for virtues and miracles, he went to the Lord.

Romæ sanctæ Pudentiánæ Vírginis, quæ, post innúmeros agónes, post multórum Mártyrum venerabíliter exhíbitas sepultúras, post omnes facultátes suas pro Christo paupéribus erogátas, tandem de terris ad cælos migrávit. At Rome, the saintly virgin Pudentiana, who, after numberless tribulations, after burying with respect many martyrs, and distributing all her goods to the poor for Christ’s sake, departed from this world to go to heaven.

Ibídem sancti Pudéntis Senatóris, qui ejúsdem sanctæ Pudentiánæ Vírginis ac sanctæ item Praxédis Vírginis fuit pater; atque, ab Apostólicis Christo in baptísmo vestítus, innocéntem túnicam usque ad vitæ corónam immaculáte custodívit. In the same city, St. Pudens, senator, father of the virgins Pudentiana and Praxedes. He was clothed with Christ in baptism by the apostles, and preserved the robe of innocence unspotted until he received the crown of life.

Item Romæ, via Appia, natális sanctórum Calóceri et Parthénii eunuchórum; quorum prior, cum esset præpósitus cubículi uxóris Décii Imperatóris, postérior vero altérius múneris primicérius, et ambo nollent idólis sacrificáre, idcírco, ejúsdem Imperatóris jussu váriis ac diris sunt excruciáti supplíciis, ac tandem, cervícibus ardénti fuste contúsis, spíritum Deo tradidérunt. Also at Rome, on the Appian Way, the birthday of the Saints Calocerus and Parthenius, eunuchs.

Ibídem sanctárum sex Vírginum et Mártyrum, quarum præcípua erat Cyríaca, quæ, cum líbere Maximiánum impietátis objurgásset, diríssime cæsa et dilaniáta est, atque ad últimum, igne cremáta, martyrium consummávit. In the same city, six holy virgins and martyrs.
