January 2.

St. Concord

Is said, by his English biographer Butler, to have been a sub-deacon in a desert, martyred at Spoletto, about the year 178; whereto the same biographer adds, "In the Roman Martyrology his name occurs on the first, in some others on the second of January." The infallible Roman church, to end the discord, rejects the authority of the "Roman Martyrology," and keeps the festival of Concord on the second of January.
