Roman Martyrology, February 7th

This Day, the Seventh Day of February

The holy abbot Romuald, founder of the monks of Camaldoli, whose birthday is the 19th of June.

At London, in England, the birthday of the blessed bishop Augulus, who terminated his career by martyrdom, and deserved to receive an eternal recompense.

In Phrygia, Saint Adaucus, martyr, an Italian of noble birth, who was honored by the emperors with almost every dignity. Whilst he was still discharging the office of quaestor, he was judged worthy of the crown of martyrdom for his defense of the faith.

Also, many holy martyrs, inhabitants of the same city, whose leader was Adaucus, just named. As they were all Christians, and persisted in the confession of the faith, they were burned to death by the emperor Galerius Maximian.

At Heracles, in the reign of Licinius, Saint Theodore, a military officer, who was beheaded, after undergoing many torments, and went victoriously to Heaven.

In Egypt, Saint Moses, a venerable bishop, who first led a solitary life in the desert, and being afterwards made bishop, at the request of Mauvia, queen of the Saracens, converted to the faith the greater part of that barbarous people, and, rich in merits, passed peacefully to his reward.

At Lucca, in Tuscany, the demise of Saint Richard, king of England.

At Bologna, Saint Juliana, widow.

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
