An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day 23 of September, repeating indefinitely
All the ancient lists of the bishops of Rome name St. Linus as the immediate successor of St. Peter in the government of the Church (67-76) and he is mentioned after the apostles in the Canon of the Mass. It is possible that he might be called a martyr on account of his sufferings for the faith, without dying by the sword. St. Linus was buried on the Vatican hill, near the tomb of St. Peter.
