Martyrology-June 10th
Roman Martyrology-June 10th- on this date in various years-

St. Margaret, widow, queen of Scotland, who slept in the Lord on the 16th of November.

At Rome, on the Salarian Way, the martyrdom of blessed Getulius, a very learned nobleman, and his companions, Caerealis, Amantius, and Primitivus. By order of Emperor Hadrian they were arrested by the ex-consul Licinius, scourged, thrown into prison, and then delivered to the flames. But the fire did not injure them, and their heads were crushed with clubs, thus ending their martyrdom. Their bodies were taken by Symphorosa, wife of blessed Getulius, and reverently interred on her own estate.

Also at Rome, on the Aurelian Way, the birthday of the Saints Basilides, Tripos, Mandal, and twenty other martyrs, under Emperor Aurelian and Plato, the governor of the city.

At Naples in Campania, St. Maximus, bishop and martyr. For having vigorously defended the Nicene Creed he was exiled by Emperor Constantius, where he died worn out by his trials.

At Prusias in Bithynia, St. Timothy, bishop and martyr. He was beheaded during the reign of Julian the Apostate because he refused to deny Christ.

At Cologne, St. Maurinus, abbot and martyr

At Nicomedia, the martyr St. Zachary.

In Spain, the holy martyrs Crispulus and Restitutus.

In Africa, the holy martyrs Aresius, Rogatus, and fifteen others.

At Petra in Africa, St. Asterius, a bishop who suffered greatly for the Catholic faith at the hands of the Arians. He was banished to Africa by Emperor Constantius, and there died as a glorious confessor.

At Auxerre, St. Censurius, bishop.

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