September 16th
In Rome, in via Apia, in the crypt of Lucina of the cemetery of Callixtus, burial of St. Cornelius, Pope and martyr, who was severely opposed to the excision of Novaciano and, with great spirit of charity, recovered full communion with the Church to many Christians fallen in heresy. At the end he suffered exile at Civitavecchia, in Tuscany, by the Gallic Emperor, suffering the unspeakable in the words of Saint Cyprian. His memory is celebrated day after tomorrow.
