This Day, the Twenty-Ninth Day of April

At Milan, Saint Peter, martyr, of the Order of Preachers, slain by the heretics for the Catholic faith.

At Paphos, in Cyprus, Saint Tychicus, a disciple of the blessed Apostle Paul, who called him in his epistles most dear brother, faithful minister, and fellow-servant in the Lord.

At Cirtha, in Numidia, the birthday of the holy martyrs Agapius and Secundinus, bishops, who, after along exile in that city, added to the glory of their priesthood the crown of martyrdom. They suffered in the persecution of Valerian, during which the enraged Gentiles made every effort to shake the faith of the just. In their company, suffered Aemilian, soldier, Tertulla and Antonia, consecrated virgins, and a woman with her twin children.

The same day, seven robbers, who, being converted to Christ by Saint Jason, attained to eternal life by martyrdom.

At Brescia, Saint Paulinus, bishop and confessor.

In the monastery of Cluny, the abbot Saint Hugh.

In the monastery of Molesmes, Saint Robert, first abbot of the Cistercians.

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
