St. Zachary, priest and prophet, the father of blessed John Baptist, Forerunner of our Lord.

At Terracina in Campania, the birthday of the holy martyrs Felix, a priest, and Eusebius, a monk. The latter buried the holy martyrs Julian and Caesarius, and converted to the faith of Christ many whom the priest St. Felix baptized. They were arrested together, and both were led to the tribunal of the judge, who could not succeed in intimidating them; they were shut up in prison, and as they refused to offer sacrifice, were beheaded that same night.
