(Saints) Bps. (May 15) (1st century) The seven disciples (Italians and Greeks) consecrated Bishops by the Apostles, and sent as missionaries into Spain. There Saint Torquatus fixed his See at Cadiz, and each one of the others in some principal city. Their work was blessed by God and they made many converts to Christianity. No reliable details of their Apostolate have come down to our times, though each of the first founded Spanish Churches has traditions regarding it.
