The Roman Martyrology September 29
On Mount Gargano, the commemoration of the blessed archangel Michael. This festival is kept in memory of the day when, under his invocation, there was consecrated a church, unpretending in its exterior, but endowed with celestial virtue.
At Auxerre, St. Fraternus, bishop and martyr. In Thrace, the birthday of the holy martyrs Eutychius, Plautus, and Heracleas.
In Persia, the holy martyrs Dadas, a blood relative of King Sapor, Casdoa, his wife, and Gabdelas, his son. After being deprived of their dignities, and subjected to various torments, they were imprisoned for a long time and finally put to the sword.
In Armenia, under King Tiridates, the holy virgin Ripsimis and her martyr companions.
In Persia, under King Sapor, the holy martyr Gudelia. After converting many to the faith, and having refused to adore the sun and the fire, she was subjected to numerous torments. Having the skin torn off her head, and being fastened to a post, she merited an eternal triumph.
At Pontecorvo near Aquino, St. Grimoaldus, priest and confessor.
In Palestine, St. Quiriacus, an anchoret.
Et álibi aliórum plurimórum sanctórum Mártyrum et Confessórum, atque sanctárum Vírginum. R. Deo grátias.
And elsewhere in divers places, many other holy martyrs, confessors, and holy virgins. R. Thanks be to God.
