Ejus corpus Medioláni, in Ecclésia sancti Bárnabæ cólitur. At Cremona in Italy, St. Anthony-Mary Zacharias, confessor, founder of the Clerks Regular of St. Paul and also of the Angelic Virgins. Distinguished for all the virtues and for miracles, he was placed among the saints by Pope Leo XIII. His body is venerated in the Church of St. Barnabas at Milan.

Romæ sanctæ Zoæ Mártyris, uxóris beáti Nicostráti Mártyris, quæ, sub Diocletiáno Imperatóre, dum ad confessiónem beáti Petri Apóstoli oráret, a persecutóribus est arctáta et in custódiam obscuríssimam trusa; deínde collo et capíllis in árbore, adhíbito subter horríbili fumo, suspénsa est, et ita, in confessióne Dómini, emísit spíritum. At Rome, St. Zoe, martyr, wife of the blessed martyr Nicostratus. While praying at the tomb of the apostle St. Peter, during the time of Diocletian, she was seized by the persecutors, cast into a dark dungeon, then hanged on a tree by her neck and hair, and suffocated by a loathsome smoke, finally yielding up her soul in the confession of the Lord.

Cyréne, in Libya, sanctæ Cyríllæ Mártyris, quæ, in persecutióne Diocletiáni, ardéntes carbónes cum thure super manum pósitos diu ténuit, ne, prunas excutiéndo, thus obtulísse viderétur; deínde, sævíssime laniáta, próprio decoráta sánguine migrávit ad Sponsum. At Cyrene in Libya, St. Cyrilla, martyr, in the persecution of Diocletian. She held burning coals with incense on her hand for a long time, lest by shaking off the coals she should seem to offer incense to the idols.
