Roman Martyrology, February 11th

This Day, the Eleventh Day of February

At Lourdes, in France, the apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary Immaculate.

In Africa, during the persecution of Diocletian, the birthday of the holy martyrs Saturninus, a priest, Dativus, Felix, Ampelius, and their companions. They had, as was their custom, assembled for Mass, when they were seized by the soldiers and put to death, under the proconsul Anolinus.

In Numidia, in the same persecution, the commemoration of many holy martyrs, who, refusing after their apprehension to deliver the holy Scriptures, conformably to the imperial edict, were given over to most painful torments and slain.

At Adrianople, the holy martyrs Lucius, bishop, and his companions. Lucius suffered much from the Arians under Constantius, and terminated his martyrdom in prison. The others, who were among the principal citizens, refusing to communicate with the Arians, just then anathematized in the Council of Sardica, were condemned to capital punishment by Count Philagrius.

At Lyons, Saint Desiderius, bishop of Vienne, and martyr.

At Ravenna, Saint Calocerus, bishop and confessor.

At Milan, Saint Lazarus, bishop.

At Capua, Saint Castrensis, bishop.

At Chateau-Landon, Saint Severin, abbot of the monastery of Agaunum, by whose prayers the Christian king Clovis was delivered from a long sickness.

In Egypt, Saint Jonas, a monk, eminent for virtues.

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
