Tértio Kaléndas Júlii. Luna . The Twenty-Ninth Day of June. The Night of the Moon. 

Romæ natális sanctórum Apostolórum Petri et Pauli, qui eódem anno eodémque die passi sunt, sub Neróne Imperatóre. Horum prior, in eádem Urbe, cápite ad terram verso cruci affíxus, et in Vaticáno juxta viam Triumphálem sepúltus, totíus Orbis veneratióne celebrátur; postérior autem, gládio animadvérsus, et via Ostiénsi sepúltus, pari honóre habétur. At Rome, the birthday of the holy apostles Peter and Paul, who suffered martyrdom on the same day, under Emperor Nero. Within the city the former was crucified with his head downwards, and buried in the Vatican, near the Triumphal Way, where he is venerated by the whole world. The latter was put to the sword and buried on the Ostian Way, where he received similar honours.

In Cypro sanctæ Maríæ, matris Joánnis qui cognominátus est Marcus. In Cyprus, St. Mary, mother of John, surnamed Mark.

In castro Argentómacho, in Gállia, sancti Marcélli Mártyris, qui, pro fide Christi, una cum Anastásio, viro militári, cápite plexus est. At Argenton in France, St. Marcellus, martyr, who was beheaded for the faith of Christ together with the soldier Anastasius.

Génuæ natális sancti Syri Epíscopi. At Genoa, the birthday of St. Syrus, bishop.

Nárniæ sancti Cássii, ejúsdem cívitátis Epíscopi, de quo sanctus Gregórius Papa refert quod nullus ferme dies vitæ ejus abscedébat, quo placatiónis hóstias omnipoténti Deo non offérret; cui et concordábat vita, quia, cuncta quæ habébat, in eleemósynis tríbuens, in hora sacrifícii totus in lácrimis diffluébat. Demum, natalítio Apostolórum die, quo síngulis annis Romam veníre consuéverat, in eádem Narniénsi urbe, cum Missárum solémnia celebrásset, et corpus Domínicum pacémque ómnibus dedísset, migrávit ad Dóminum. At Narni, St. Cassius, bishop of that city. St. Gregory relates that he permitted scarcely any day of his life to pass without offering the Victim of propitiation to Almighty God. It was in character with his life for he distributed in alms all he possessed, and his devotion was such that abundant tears flowed from his eyes during the holy Sacrifice. At last, coming to Rome on the birthday of the apostles, as was his yearly custom, after having solemnly celebrated Mass and given the Lord’s Body and the kiss of peace to all, he departed for heaven.
