Martyrology-March 11th
Roman Martyrology-March 11th-on this date in various years-

At Sardis, St. Euthymius, bishop, who was sent into exile by the Iconoclast emperor Michael for the veneration of sacred images. Afterwards, in the reign of Theophilus, he was barbarously beaten with knotted clubs, which completed his martyrdom.

At Cordova in Spain, St. Eulogius, priest, who deserved to be associated with the martyrs of that city because, in writing of their trials for the faith, he had envied their happiness. On account of his own fearless and intrepid confession of Christ, he was scourged and beaten with rods, and finally beheaded during the Saracen persecution.

At Carthage, the holy martyrs Heraclius and Zosimus.

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

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

At Antioch, the Commemoration of many holy martyrs, some of whom by order of Emperor Maximian were laid on red hot gridirons, not to be burned to death, but to continue their suffering a longer time; others were subjected to different horrible torments, and won the palm of martyrdom.

Also, Saints Gorgonius and Firmus.

At Jerusalem, Bishop St. Sophronius.

At Milan, St. Benedict, bishop.

In the diocese of Amiens, St. Firmin, abbot.

At Carthage, St. Constantine, confessor.
