Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The notation Old Style or (OS) is sometimes used to indicate a date in the Julian Calendar (which is used by churches on the "Old Calendar").
    The notation New Style or (NS), indicates a date in the Revised Julian calendar (which is used by churches on the "New Calendar").
  2. ^ A Syrian by descent, he was Bishop of Rome from about 152 till 166. During this period St Polycarp of Smyrna visited Rome to settle with him the question of the date of Easter. Anicetus took a firm stand against the Gnostics and may have been martyred.
  3. ^ He should not be confused with St Acacius the Confessor (March 31), who was also a bishop of Melitene.
  4. ^ "In Africa, the birthday of blessed Mappalicus, and many others who were crowned with martyrdom, as is related by St. Cyprian in his epistle to the Martyrs and Confessors."[3]
  5. ^ A confessor under Diocletian, he was scourged and just escaped death. He was later ordained priest and became Bishop of Tortona in Italy (c 326).
  6. ^ St Donnán was a monk at Iona with St Columba and founded a monastery on the Island of Eigg in the Inner Hebrides, off the west coast of Scotland. He and his fifty-two monks were massacred by heathen raiders on Easter Sunday 618.
  7. ^ As a result of a false accusation he was exiled to Troyes but was reinstated after his innocence had been proved.
  8. ^ ELIAS, PAUL and ISIDORE (SS.) MM. (April 17) (9th century) "St. Elias was a priest venerable for age and virtue, who together with Paul and Isidore, two young Christians, his spiritual children, suffered for Christ (A.D. 856) at Cordova in Spain in the persecution under the Caliph Mohammed. St. Eulogius makes special mention of them in his History of the Times."[16]
  9. ^ They are also commemorated on the Sunday of Myrrh-bearing Women, the second Sunday following Pascha.
