Roman Martyrology, March 11th

This Day, the Eleventh Day of March

At Carthage, the holy martyrs Heraclius and Zosimus.

At Alexandria, the passion of the Saints Candidus, Piperion, and twenty others.

At Laodicea, in Syria, during the persecution of Diocletian, the holy martyrs Trophimus and Thalus, who obtained crowns of glory, after undergoing many severe torments.

At Antioch, the commemoration of many holy martyrs, some of whom by order of the emperor Maximian were laid on red-hot gridirons, not to be burned to death, but to suffer a longer time, others were subjected to different horrible torments, and won the palm of martyrdom.

Also, the Saints Gorgonius and Firmus.

At Cordova, Saint Eulogius, a priest, who deserved to be associated with the martyrs of that city, in the persecution of the Saracens, because in writing of their combats for the faith, he had envied their happiness.

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
