Martyrology-August 30th
Roman Martyrology-August 30th- on this date in various years-

The feast of St. Rose of St. Mary, virgin of the Third Order of St. Dominic, whose birthday is recalled on the 24th of August.

At Rome, on the Ostian Way, the martyrdom of the blessed priest Felix, under Emperors Diocletian and Maximian. After being racked he was sentenced to death, and as they led him to execution, he met a man who spontaneously declared himself a Christian, and was forthwith beheaded with him. The Christians, not knowing his name, called him Adauctus, because he was added to St. Felix and shared his crown.

Also at Rome, St. Gaudentia, virgin and martyr, with three others.

At Colonia Suffetulana in Africa, sixty blessed martyrs, who were murdered by the furious heathen.

At Bologna, St. Bononius, abbot.

At Rome, St Pammachius, priest, who was noteworthy for learning and sanctity.

At Adrumetum, also in Africa, the Saints Boniface and Thecla, who were the parents of twelve blessed sons, all martyrs.

At Thessalonica, St. Fantinus, confessor, who suffered much from the Saracens, and was driven from his monastery, in which he had lived in great abstinence. After having brought many to the way of salvation, he rested at last at an advanced age.

In the diocese of Meaux, St. Fiacre, confessor.

At Trevi in Lazio, St. Peter, confessor, who was distinguished for many virtues and miracles. He is honoured in that place from which he departed for heaven.

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