Pope Benedict XIII placed him on the canon of the saints as special protector of young students; Pope Pius XI confirmed this and again solemnly declared him to be the heavenly patron of all Christian youth.

Item Romæ sanctæ Demétriæ Vírginis, quæ, sanctórum Mártyrum Flaviáni et Dafrósæ fília ac sanctæ Vírginis et Mártyris Bibiánæ soror, ipsa quoque, sub Juliáno Apóstata, martyrio coronáta est. Also at Rome, St. Demetria, virgin, daughter of the holy martyrs Flavian and Dafrosa, and the sister of St. Bibiana, virgin and martyr.

Eódem die sancti Eusébii, Samosaténi Epíscopi; qui, témpore Constántii, Imperatóris Ariáni, sub hábitu militári incógnitus Ecclésias Dei visitábat, ut in fide cathólica illas confirmáret. Deínde, sub Valénte, in Thráciam relegátur; sed, réddita pace Ecclésiæ, témpore Theodósii, ab exsílio revocátus, tandem, cum íterum Ecclésias visitáret, ei caput, tégula per mulíerem Ariánam désuper immíssa, confráctum est, sicque Martyr occúbuit. The same day, St. Eusebius, bishop of Samosata. In the time of the Arian emperor Constantius, he disguised himself in military dress and visited the churches of God to confirm them in the faith. He was banished into Thrace by Valens, but when peace was restored to the Church in the reign of Theodosius, he was recalled. When he again visited the churches, an Arian woman threw a tile down upon him, which fractured his skull and made him a martyr.
