Roman Martyrology, February 10th

This Day, the Tenth Day of February

On Mount Cassino, Saint Scholastica, a virgin, whose soul her brother, Saint Benedict, the abbot, saw leaving her body in the form of a dove, and ascending to Heaven.

At Rome, the holy martyrs Zoticus, Irenaeus, Hyacinthus, and Amantius.

In the same place, on the Lavican road, ten holy soldiers, martyrs.

Also at Rome, on the Appian way, Saint Soteres, virgin and martyr, who was descended of a noble race, as Saint Ambrose testifies, but for the love of Christ set at naught the consular and other dignities of her family. On her refusal to sacrifice to the gods, she was for a long time cruelly buffeted. After she had overcome various other torments, she was struck with the sword, and joyfully went to her Heavenly spouse.

In Campania, Saint Silvanus, bishop and confessor.

At Maleval, in the diocese of Siena, Saint William, a hermit.

In the diocese of Roueu, Saint Austreberta, a virgin renowned for miracles.

And elsewhere in divers places, many other holy martyrs, confessors, and holy virgins.

V: All ye Holy Martyrs, pray for us
R: Thanks be to God
