Roman Martyrology-February 29th-on this date in various years-
At Rome, the birthday of the holy martyrs Macarius, Rufinus, Justus, and Theophilus.
At Alexandria, the passion of the Saints Caerealis, Pupulus, Caius, and Serapion.
In the same city, in the reign of Emperor Valerian, the commemoration of the holy priests, deacons, and many others. When a most deadly epidemic was raging, they willingly met their death by ministering to the sick. The religious sentiment of the pious faithful has generally venerated them as martyrs.
At Rome, St. Hilary, pope and confessor.
In the territory of Lyons, in the Jura Mountains, the death of St. Romanus, abbot, who first had led the life of a hermit there. His reputation for virtues and miracles brought under his guidance many monks.
At Papia, the transfer, ordered by the Lombard King Luitprand, of the body of St. Augustine, bishop, away from the island of Sardinia.
And elsewhere in divers places, many other holy martyrs, confessors, and holy virgins.
R. Thanks be to God.
