MARTYROLOGY-AUGUST 17

Martyrology-August 17th
Roman Martyrology-August 17th- on this date in various years-

The Octave of St. Lawrence, martyr.

St. Hyacinth, confessor of the Order of Preachers, who fell asleep in the Lord on the 15th of August.

At Carthage in Africa, the holy martyrs Liberatus, abbot, Boniface, a deacon, Servus and Rusticus, subdeacons, Rogatus and Septimus, monks, and Maximus, a young child. In the persecution of the Vandals, under King Hunneric, they were subjected to various and unheard-of torments for the confession of the Catholic faith and the defence of one baptism. Finally, being nailed to the wood with which they were to be burned, as the fire was always miraculously extinguished whenever kindled, they were struck with iron bars by order of the tyrant until their brains were dashed out. Thus they ended the glorious series of their combats, and were crowned by our Lord. read more
