St. Eusebius, Pope and martyr

Today is the feast of St. Eusebius, Pope and martyr.  Here is his entry in the Roman Martyrology:

3. In Sicilia, natalis sancti Eusebii, papae, qui, strenuus testis Christi, a Maxentio imperatore hanc in insulam deportatus est et, exsul patriae terrenae, meruit obtinere caelestem; cuius corpus Romam translatum in coemeterio Callisti depositum est. … In Sicily, the day (of birth into heaven) of Saint Eusebius, Pope, who as a strenuous witness of Christ was deported by the Emperor Maxentius to an island, ans as an exile from his native land, merited to obtain a heavenly homeland; whose body was translated back to Rome and placed in the cemetery of Callistus.
