Prídie Nonas Aprílis. Luna. The Fourth Day of April. The Night of the Moon.

Híspali, in Hispánia, sancti Isidóri Epíscopi, Confessóris et Ecclésiæ Doctóris, sanctitáte et doctrína conspícui; qui zelo cathólicæ fidei et ecclesiásticæ observántia disciplinæ Hispánias illustrávit. At Seville in Spain, St. Isidore, bishop, confessor, and doctor of the Church. He was conspicuous for sanctity and learning, and had brightened all Spain by his zeal for the Catholic faith and his observance of Church discipline. Medioláni deposítio sancti Ambrósii Epíscopi, Confessóris et Ecclésiæ Doctóris; cujus stúdio, inter cétera doctrínæ et miraculórum insígnia, témpore Ariánæ perfídiæ, tota fere Itália ad cathólicam fidem convérsa est. Ipsíus tamen festívitas séptimo Idus Decémbris potíssimum recólitur, quo die Epíscopus Mediolanénsis ordinátus est. At Milan, the death of St. Ambrose, bishop and confessor, doctor of the Church. By his zeal, besides other monuments to his learning and miracles, almost all Italy returned to the Catholic faith at the time of the Arian heresy. His feast is properly kept on the seventh of December, on which day he became Bishop of Milan. Thessalonícæ sanctórum Mártyrum Agathópodis Diáconi, et Theodúli Lectóris, qui, sub Maximiáno Imperatóre et Faustíno Prǽside, ob Christiánæ fidei confessiónem, in mare, alligáto ad collum saxo, demérsi sunt. At Thessalonica, in the time of Emperor Maximian and the governor Faustinus, the holy martyrs Agathopodes, a deacon, and Theodulus, a lector, who, for the confession of the Catholic faith, had stones tied to their necks and were drowned in the sea. Constantinópoli sancti Platónis Mónachi, qui plúribus annis advérsus hæréticos, sanctárum Imáginum effractóres, invícto ánimo decertávit. At Constantinople, the monk St. Plato. For many years he combated with dauntless courage the heretics bent on destroying sacred images. In Palæstína sancti Zósimi Anachorétæ, qui funus sanctæ Maríæ Ægyptíacæ curávit. In Palestine, the anchoret St. Zosimus, who took care of the funeral of St. Mary of Egypt. Panórmi sancti Benedícti a sancto Philadélpho, ob córporis nigrédinem cognoménto Nigri, ex Ordine Minórum, Confessóris; qui, signis et virtútibus clarus, in Dómino quiévit, et a Pio Séptimo, Pontífice Máximo, in Sanctórum númerum relátus est. At Palermo, St. Benedict of St. Philadelphus, called the Black because of the darkness of his body, a confessor of the Order of Friars Minor. After becoming outstanding for signs and virtues, he went to rest in the Lord, and was enrolled among the saints by Pope Pius VII.

Et álibi aliórum plurimórum sanctórum Mártyrum et Confessórum, atque sanctárum Vírginum. And elsewhere in divers places, many other holy martyrs, confessors, and holy virgins. R. Deo grátias. R. Thanks be to God.
