Roman Martyrology, November 13th

This Day, the Thirteenth Day of November

Saint Didacus, confessor, of the Order of Friars Minor, whose birthday occurred on the twelfth of this month.

At Ravenna, the birthday of the holy martyrs Valentine, Solutor and Victor, who suffered under the emperor Diocletian.

At Aix, in Provence, Saint Matrius, a most renowned martyr.

At Caesarea, in Palestine, the martyrdom of the Saints Antoninus, Zebina, Germanus and Ennatha, virgin. Ennatha was scourged under Galerius Maximian, and burned alive, while the others, for boldly reproaching the governor Firmilian for his idolatry in sacrificing to the gods, were beheaded.

In Africa, the holy martyrs Arcadius, Paschasius, Probus and Eutychian, Spaniards, who refused absolutely to yield to the Arian perfidy, during the persecution of the Vandals. Accordingly they were proscribed by the Arian King Genseric, driven into exile, and finally, after being subjected to fearful tortures, were put to death in various manners. Then was also made manifest the constancy of the small boy Paulillus, brother of the Saints Paschasius and Eutychian. As he could not be seduced from the Catholic faith, he was a long time beaten with rods, and condemned to a base servitude.

At Rome, Pope Saint Nicholas, distinguished for the apostolic spirit.

At Tours, Saint Brice, bishop, disciple of the blessed bishop Martin.

At Toledo, Saint Eugenius, bishop.

At Clermont, in Auvergne, Saint Quinctian, bishop.

At Cremona, Saint Homobonus, confessor, renowned for miracles. He was ranked among the saints by Innocent III.

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
