MARTYROLOGY-NOVEMBER 30

Martyrology-November 30th
Roman Martyrology-November 30th-on this date in various years-

At Patras in Achaia, the birthday of the apostle St. Andrew, who preached
the gospel of Christ in Thrace and Sythia. He was apprehended by the
proconsul Aegeas, imprisoned, and severely scourged, and finally, being hung
on a cross, he lived two days on it, teaching the people. Having besought
our Lord not to permit him to be taken down from the cross, he was
surrounded with a great brightness from heaven, and when the light
disappeared he breathed his last.

At Rome, the martyrdom of the Saints Castulus and Euprepis.

At Constantinople, St. Maura, virgin and martyr.

Also, St. Justina, virgin and martyr.

At Rome, St. Constantius, confessor, who bravely opposed the Pelagians, and by enduring many injuries from them, gained a place among the holy
confessors.

At Saintes in France, St. Trojan, bishop and confessor, a man of great
sanctity, who shews by many miracles that he lives in heaven, though his
body is buried on earth.

In Palestine, blessed Zosimus, confessor, who was distinguished for his
sanctity and miracles in the time of Emperor Justin.

And elsewhere in divers places, many other holy martyrs, confessors, and holy virgins.
R. Thanks be to God.
