Apud Villam Regálem, in Hispánia, sancti Paschális, ex Ordine Minórum, Confessóris, miræ innocéntiæ et pæniténtiæ viri; quem Leo Papa Décimus tértius cæléstem eucharisticórum Cœtuum et Societátum a sanctíssima Eucharístia Patrónum declarávit. At Villareal in Spain, St. Paschal of the Order of Friars Minor, confessor. He was a man remarkable for innocence of life and the spirit of penance, whom Pope Leo XIII declared to be the heavenly patron of Eucharistic Congresses and of societies formed to honour the Most Blessed Sacrament.

Eódem die sanctæ Restitútæ, Vírginis et Mártyris; quæ, in Africa, Valeriáno imperánte, a Próculo Júdice várie torta, et in navículam pice et stupa refértam, ut in mari comburerétur, impósita, tandem, cum in incensóres, immísso igne, flamma converterétur, in oratióne spíritum Deo réddidit. Ipsíus corpus cum eádem navícula, Dei nutu, ad Ænáriam ínsulam, prope Neápolim, in Campánia, devéctum est, et a Christiánis magna veneratióne suscéptum; ac póstmodum in ejus honórem Constantínus Magnus Basílicam in ipsa urbe Neápoli erigéndam curávit. Also St. Restituta, virgin and martyr, who was subjected to various kinds of tortures in Africa by the judge Proculus, in the reign of Valerian, and then put in a boat filled with pitch and oakum, to be burned to death on the sea. But the flame turned on those who kindled it, and the saint yielded her soul to God in prayer. Her body was, by Divine Providence, carried in the boat to the island of Ischia, near Naples, where it was received by the Christians with great veneration. A church was afterwards erected in her honour at Naples by Constantine the Great.
