September 21

The leave-taking of the Exaltation of the Cross.

Transferred to September 22 (because of the leave-taking):
The holy apostle Quadratus of Magnesia in Greece, disciple of the Apostles. It is told that he, by his faith and diligence, gathered together the Church, which had been scattered by terror in the persecution of Hadrian the emperor. He also presented a book in defense of the Christian religion, worthy of the apostolic teaching, to that same emperor. (c. 130)

On this day we repeat the hymns of the feast.
