Twenty-Seventh Day of June



This Day, the Twenty-Seventh Day of June

The Feast of the Miraculous icon of the Mother of God of Perpetual Succour. In Galatia, St. Crescens, disciple of the blessed Apostle Paul. In passing through Gaul, he converted many to the Christian faith by his preaching. Returning to the people for whom especially he had been made bishop, he maintained, to the end of his life, the Galatians in the service of the Lord, and finally consummated his martyrdom under Trajan.

At Cordova, St. Zoilus, and nineteen other martyrs.

At Caesarea, in Palestine, in the persecution of Diocletian, under the governor Urbanus, St. Anectus, martyr. For having exhorted others to suffer martyrdom, and overthrown idols by his prayers, he was scourged by ten soldiers, had his hands and feet cut off, and by decapitation merited the crown of martyrdom.

At Constantinople, St. Sampson, a priest who harbored the poor.

At Warasdin, in Hungary, the holy king Ladislas, greatly renowned to this day for miracles.

In the town of Chinon in France, St. John, priest and confessor.

And elsewhere in divers places, many other holy martyrs, confessors, and holy virgins.

Omnes sancti Mártyres, oráte pro nobis. ("All ye Holy Martyrs, pray for us", from the Litaniae Sanctorum, the Litany of the Saints)

Response: Thanks be to God.
