Roman Martyrology, December 30th

This Day, the Thirtieth Day of December

At Spoleto, the birthday of the holy martyrs Sabinus, bishop, Exuperantius and Marcellus, deacons; also of Venustian, governor, with his wife and sons, under the emperor Maximian. Marcellus and Exuperantius were first racked, then severely beaten with rods; afterwards being mangled with iron hooks, and burned in the sides, they terminated their martyrdom. Not long after, Venustian was put to the sword with his wife and sons. Saint Sabinus, after having his hands cut off, and being a long time confined in prison, was scourged to death. The martyrdom of these saints is commemorated on the same day, although it occurred at different times.

At Alexandria, the holy martyrs Mansuetus, Severus, Appian, Donatus, Honorius, and their companions.

At Thessalonica, Saint Anysia, martyr.

In the same place, Saint Anysius, bishop of that city.

At Milan, Saint Eugene, bishop and confessor.

At Ravenna, Saint Liberius, bishop.

At Aquila, in Abruzzo, Saint Rainerius, bishop.

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
