In monastério Fossæ Novæ, prope Tarracínam, in Campánia, sancti Thomæ Aquinátis, Confessóris et Ecclésiæ Doctóris, ex Ordine Prædicatórum, nobilitáte géneris, vitæ sanctitáte et Theologíæ sciéntia illustríssimi; quem Leo Papa Décimus tértius cæléstem Scholárum ómnium catholicárum Patrónum declarávit. In the monastery of Fossanova, near Terracina in Campania, St. Thomas Aquinas, confessor and doctor of the Church, a member of the Order of Preachers, famous for his noble family, for the sanctity of his life, and for his knowledge of theology. Pope Leo XIII declared him the heavenly patron of all Catholic schools. Carthágine natális sanctárum Perpétuæ et Felicitátis Mártyrum; e quibus Felícitas, cum esset prægnans (ut sanctus Augustínus ait), juxta leges exspectáta ut páreret, dum parturiébat, dolébat, objécta feris gaudébat. Passi quoque sunt cum eis Sátyrus, Saturnínus, Revocátus et Secúndulus; quorum últimus quiévit in cárcere, réliqui omnes a váriis béstiis sunt vexáti, ac demum gladiórum íctibus confécti, sub Sevéro Príncipe, Sanctárum vero Perpétuæ et Felicitátis festum prídie hujus diéi recólitur. At Carthage, the birthday of Saints Perpetua and Felicity, martyrs. St. Augustine relates that Felicity being with child, her execution was deferred, according to the law, until after her delivery. He states that while she was in labour, she mourned, and when cast to the beasts, she rejoiced. With them suffered Satyrus, Saturninus, Revocatus, and Secundulus, the last of whom died in prison; the others were delivered to the beasts, all during the reign of Severus. The feast of Saints Perpetua and Felicity was celebrated yesterday. Cæsaréæ, in Palæstína, pássio sancti Eubúli, qui fuit sócius sancti Hadriáni, atque, bíduo post illum, laniátus a leónibus et gládio trucidátus, martyrii corónam, últimus ómnium in ea civitáte, accépit. At Caesarea in Palestine, the passion of St. Eubulus, who was a companion of St. Adrian. Two days after the latter’s death, he was mangled by the lions and put to death by the sword. He was the last of all those who received the crown of martyrdom in that city. Nicomedíæ sancti Theóphili Epíscopi, qui, ob cultum sanctárum Imáginum in exsílium pulsus, illic defúnctus est. At Nicomedia, St. Theophilus, bishop, who was driven into exile for the veneration of sacred images, and died there. Pelúsii, in Ægypto, sancti Pauli Epíscopi, qui, eándem ob causam, exsul occúbuit. At Pelusium in Egypt, St. Paul, bishop, who died in exile for the same cause. Bríxiæ sancti Gaudiósi, Epíscopi et Confessóris. At Brescia, St. Gaudiosus, bishop and confessor. In Thebáide sancti Pauli, cognoménto Símplicis. In Thebais, St. Paul, surnamed the Simple. Floréntiæ, in Etrúria, sanctæ Terésiæ Margarítæ Redi, Vírginis, Ordinis Carmelitárum Excalceatárum, vitæ puritáte ac simplicitáte admirábilis, quam Pius Papa Undécimus sanctárum Vírginum albo adscrípsit. At Florence in Etruria, St. Teresa Margaret Redi, virgin, a member of the Order of Discalced Carmelites, of such admirable purity and simplicity that Pope Pius XI solemnly enrolled her on the scroll of holy virgins.

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.
