Séptimo Kaléndas Februárii.  Luna. The Twenty-Sixth Day of January. The Night of the Moon.

Sancti Polycárpi, Epíscopi Smyrnénsis et Mártyris; qui martyrii corónam séptimo Kaléndas Mártii consecútus est. St. Polycarp, Bishop of Smyrna and martyr, who gained the crown of martyrdom on the 23rd of February. Hippóne Régio, in Africa, sanctórum Theógenis Epíscopi, et aliórum trigínta sex; qui, in persecutióne Valeriáni, contemnéntes temporálem mortem, corónam ætérnæ vitæ adépti sunt. At Hippo in Africa, the holy bishop Theogenes and thirty-six others, who, despising temporal death, obtained the crown of eternal life in the persecution of Valerian. Apud Béthlehem Judæ dormítio sanctæ Paulæ Víduæ, quæ, cum esset e nobilíssimo Senatórum génere, cum beáta Vírgine Christi Eustóchio, fília sua, renúntians sæculo, facultátes suas paupéribus distríbuit, et ad Præsépe Dómini se recépit; ibíque, multis virtútibus prǽdita et longo coronáta martyrio, ad cæléstia regna transívit. Ipsíus autem vitam, virtútibus admirándum, sanctus Hierónymus scripsit. At Bethlehem of Judea, the death of St. Paula, widow, mother of St. Eustochium, a virgin of Christ, who abandoned her worldly prospects, though she was descended from a noble line of senators, distributed her goods to the poor, and retired to our Lord’s manger, where, endowed with many virtues, and crowned with a long martyrdom, she departed for the kingdom of heaven. Her admirable life was written by St. Jerome.

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.
