This Day, the Fifteenth Day of January

Saint Paul, the first hermit, who was carried to the home of the blessed on the tenth of this month.

In the diocese of Angers, Saint Maur, abbot and disciple of Saint Benedict. He made great progress with so able a master, for while he was still under the Saint’s instruction he miraculously walked upon the water a prodigy unheard of since the days of Saint Peter. Sent later to France by Saint Benedict, he built a famous monastery, which he governed for forty years, and after performing striking miracles, he rested in peace.

In Judaea, the holy prophets Habacuc and Michaeas, whose bodies were found by divine revelation in the days of Theodosius the Elder.

At Anagni, Saint Secundina, virgin and martyr, who suffered under the emperor Decius.

At Clermont,in Auvergne, Saint Bonitus, bishop and confessor.

In Egypt, Saint Macarius, abbot, disciple of Saint Anthony, very celebrated for his life and miracles.

Also, blessed Isidore, renowned for holiness of life, faith and miracles.

At Rome, Saint John Calybita. For some time living unknown to his parents in a corner of their house, and later in a hut on an island in the Tiber, he was recognized by them only at his death. Being renowned for miracles, he was buried where he had died, and a church was subsequently erected in his honor in the same place.

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

V: All ye Holy Martyrs, pray for us
