Prídie Idus Aprílis. Luna . The Twelfth Day of April. The Night of the Moon.

Verónæ pássio sancti Zenónis Epíscopi, qui inter persecutiónis procéllas eam Ecclésiam mira constántia gubernávit, et, Galliéni témpore, martyrio coronátus est. At Verona, the passion of Bishop St. Zeno, who governed that Church with great fortitude amid the storms of persecution, and was crowned with martyrdom in the time of Gallienus. In Cappadócia sancti Sabæ Gothi, qui, sub Valénte Imperatóre, cum Rex Gothórum Athanarícus Christiános insequerétur, in flumen, post dira torménta, projéctus est; quo étiam témpore (ut sanctus Augustínus scribit) quamplúrimi ex Gothis orthodóxis coróna martyrii sunt insigníti. In Cappadocia, in the reign of Emperor Valens, during the persecution raised against the Christians by Atanaric, king of the Goths, St. Sabas, himself a Goth, who was cast into a river after undergoing cruel torments. Many orthodox Goths, as St. Augustine relates, received at that time the crown of martyrdom. Brácari, in Lusitánia, sancti Victóris Mártyris, qui, adhuc catechúmenus, cum noluísset idólum adoráre, et Christum Jesum magna constántia conféssus fuísset, ídeo, post multa torménta, cápite abscísso, méruit próprio sánguine baptizári. At Braga in Portugal, the martyr St. Victor. Although only a catechumen, he refused to adore an idol, and confessed Jesus Christ with great constancy. After suffering many tortures, he was beheaded, and thus merited to be baptized in his own blood. Firmi, in Picéno, sanctæ Víssiæ, Vírginis et Mártyris. At Fermo, in Piceno, St. Vissia, virgin and martyr. Romæ, via Aurélia, natális sancti Júlii Papæ Primi, qui advérsus Ariános pro fide cathólica plúrimum laborávit, ac, multis præcláre gestis, sanctitáte célebris quiévit in pace. At Rome, on the Aurelian Way, the birthday of Pope St. Julius, who vigorously defended the Catholic faith against the Arians. After a life of brilliant accomplishments, he rested in peace, famed for his sanctity. Apud Vapíngum óppidum, in Gállia, sancti Constantíni, Epíscopi et Confessóris. At the town of Gap in France, St. Constantine, bishop and confessor. Papíæ sancti Damiáni Epíscopi. At Pavia, Bishop St. Damian.

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.
