Saint Gilduin
Gilduin was born in 1052 in Brittany. He grew up to become a canon at Dol in Brittany.
He was appointed bishop of Dol by Pope Gregory VII. Gilduin felt he was unworthy of the post, and so travelled to Rome to decline the honor.
Pope Gregory VII, released him as requested. He died in 1077 on the road home from Rome. Miracles reported at his tomb. The saint was renowned for his deep humility. His tomb became a popular destination for pilgrimages.

Blessed James the Almsgiver
James was born at Citta delle Pieve, Lombardy, Italy. His parents were well to do. He studied Law but gave it up for a religious and an ascetic life. He became a priest. James restored a disused and ruined hospital and its chapel and cared for the sick there, especially the poor, giving them spiritual, medical as well as legal advise.While going through the old hospital records, James came across evidence of misappropriation of its revenue by the former bishop. He took the matter to court and successfully sued the former bishop for the return of the misappropriated funds.
The Bishop invited James to dinner on 15 January 1304 and had him murdered. His body was reportedly discovered by a group of shepherds who found the trees near his grave in full bloom in the middle of winter.

Restoring hospitals.. that reminds me of another saint who would do that.. what was his name..

'Almsgiving heals the soul's incensive power; fasting withers sensual desire; prayer purifies the intellect and prepares it for the contemplation of created beings. For the Lord has given us commandments which correspond to the powers of the soul.'

St. Maximos the Confessor

'As far as you can, do some manual work so as to be able to give alms, for it is written that alms and faith purify from sin.'

St. Poemen

'Let us give alms because these cleanse our souls from the stains of sin. Men lose all the material things they leave behind them in this world, but they carry with them the reward of their charity and the alms they give.'

St. Francis of Assisi

'I must disfigure the face which contrary to God's commandment I have painted with rouge, white lead, and antimony. I must mortify that body which has been given up to many pleasures. I must make up for my long laughter by constant weeping. I must exchange my soft linen and costly silks for rough goat's hair. I who have pleased my husband and the world in the past, desire now to please Christ.'

St. Paula

Pray for us Saint Paula, that we too may follow your example!

Saint Bathilde,
Queen and Founder

She is also known as Bathild, Bathildes and Bathildis.
She was born in England in 630. As a child, she was kidnapped from her home and enslaved. She was taken to Neustria, part of modern France but which was then part of the Frankish kingdom. She was brought to the household of the mayor of the palace of King Clovis II. She must have been a remarkable girl as in time, she became a trusted member of the the King’s Court. In 649, she married King Clovis II. She had three sons with him and each of them became King. Clotaire III; Childeric II and Thierry III. When her husband died in 655, Bathilde became reagent Clotaire III. She ruled wisely and capably. She ransomed many captives, helped promote religion in her realm and founded many monasteries. She founded a Benedictine convent at Chelles, as well as Saint Denis Monastery and Corbie. When Clotaire III assumed the throne, Bathilde retired to Chelles where she died on 30 January 680. She was buried in the Abbey of Chelles.
She was canonized by Pope Nicholas I.
Saint Bathilde,

St. Voloc and St. Bathilde pray for us!

If only Christendom was still alive! Then people would know the better how to live as Christians. And we might have saints as heads of government once again.

Saint Aiden
Bishop.

Saint Aiden. Also known as Edan as well as Modoc, and as Maedoc, was born in Connaught, Ireland. According to legend, his birth was heralded by signs and omens. He showed evidence of piety even as a child. He was educated at Leinster then went to Saint David’s Monastery in Wales to study Scripture. He was there for several years, reputedly repelling several Saxon raids by his miracles.
He eventually returned to Ireland and built a monastery at Ferns, Wexford and was consecrated bishop there.
Saint Aiden was known for his kindness to animals and to his fellow men
He is represented in art by a stag reputedly because he once made a stag invisible to save it from hounds.
He died in 626.
Saint Aiden
