Martyrology-June 27th
Roman Martyrology-June 27th- on this date in various years-

In Galatia, St. Crescens, disciple of the blessed apostle Paul. In passing through Gaul he converted many to the Christian faith by his preaching. Returning to the people for whom he had been especially made bishop, he confirmed the Galatians in the service of the Lord to the end of his life. He finally completed his martyrdom under Trajan.

At Cordova in Spain, St. Zoilus and nineteen other martyrs.

At Caesarea in Palestine, in the persecution of Diocletian, under the governor Urban, St. Anectus, martyr. For having exhorted others to suffer martyrdom, and having overthrown idols by his prayers, he was scourged by ten soldiers, had his hands and feet cut off, and merited the crown of martydom by beheading.

At Constantinople, St. Sampson, a priest, who harboured the poor.

In the town of Chinon in France, St. John, priest and confessor.

At Grosswardein in Hungary, the holy king Ladislaus, greatly renowned for his miracles even to this day.

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