Roman Martyrology, June 30th

This Day, the Thirtieth Day of June

The commemoration of the holy Apostle Paul.

At Limoges, in France, Saint Martial, bishop, with two priests, Alpinian and Austriclinian, whose lives were distinguished for miracles.

The same day, the saints Caius, priest, and Leo, subdeacon.

At Alexandria, the passion of Saint Basilides, under the emperor Severus. He protected from the insults of profligate men the saintly virgin Potamioena, whom he was leading to execution, and received from her the reward of his pious action. For, at the end of three days, she appeared to him, and placing a crown on his head, not only converted him to Christ, but by her prayers made of him, after a short combat, a glorious martyr.

At Rome, Saint Lucina, a disciple of the Apostles, who relieved the necessities of the saints with her goods, visited the Christians detained in prison, buried the martyrs, and was laid by their side in a crypt constructed by herself.

In the same city, Saint Aemiliana, martyr.

In the territory of Viviers, Saint Ostian, priest and confessor.

At Salanica, in the district of Vicenza, Saint Theobald, priest and hermit, one of the counts of Champagne. He was added to the number of the saints by Alexander III because of his holiness and miracles.

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
