Roman Martyrology-February 19th-on this date in various years-
At Rome, the birthday of St. Gavinus, priest and martyr, brother of blessed Pope Caius. After being chained in prison for a long time by Diocletian, he obtained the joys of heaven by his esteemed death.
In Africa, the holy martyrs Publius, Julian, Marcellus, and others.
