Saint Marciana
Martyr.

Marciana was a virgin martyr of Mauritania, north Africa during the persecution of Christians under Emperor Diocletian. She was accused of vandalizing a statue of the goddess Diana. After being tortured, she was thrown into the amphitheater of Caesarea, where she was gored by a bull and mauled by a leopard in 303.

Saint Cuaran the Wise
Bishop

He is also known as Curvinus and as Cronan.
He was a bishop in Ireland. When the duties of a bishop interfered with his prayer life, Cuaran surrendered the bishopric.
He became a hermit on Iona, Scotland, where he tried to conceal his true identity. He was, however, recognized by Saint Columba who gave him the honors due to a bishop.
He is called “the Wise” because of his extensive knowledge of the canons of the Church.
He died in 700 and was canonized Pre-Congregation.

Saint Austrebertha
Saint Austrebertha, also called Eustreberta, was born in 630 in France. She was the daughter Count Palatine Badefrid and Saint Framechildis. To escape an unwanted marriage, Austrebertha ran away from home and received the veil from Saint Omer at Abbeville, France. Saint Omer was able to convince her family of the genuiness of her calling. She entered the convent of Abbeville, and in time, became abbess there. She was noted for her holiness, humility, visions and miracles. Later she was appointed abbess of the convent of Pavilly which she was able to reform despite great opposition.
She died in 704 at Pavilly, Normandy in France
Was canonized Pre-Congregation

Today is also the Memorial of Saint Scholastica who was the twin sister of Saint Benedict of Nursia who founded the Benedictine order.
Following is an incident in the lives of these two great Saints to remind us that God indeed hears and answers our prayers, sometimes, as in this case, instantly!
From the Dialogues of Saint Gregory the Great, we learn that the two siblings lived about 5 miles from each other and used to meet once every year to talk on spititual matters.
Saint Gregory tells the story of the last meeting on earth of the two saints.
Scholastica and Benedict had spent the day in the "mutual comfort of
heavenly talk" and with nightfall approaching, Benedict prepared to leave.
Scholastica, having a premonition that it would be their last opportunity to see
each other alive, asked him to spend the evening in conversation. Benedict sternly
refused because he did not wish to break his own rule by spending a night away
from Monte Cassino. Thereupon, Scholastica cried openly, laid her head upon the
table, and prayed that God would intercede for her. As she did so, a sudden storm
arose. The violent rain and hail came in such a torrential downpour that Benedict
and his companions were unable to depart.
"May Almighty God forgive you, sister" said Benedict, "for what you have done."
"I asked a favor of you," Scholastica replied simply, "and you refused it. I asked it
of Almighty God, and He has granted it!"
Three days later, she died!
Heart warming, isn't it?

Guardians of the Holy Scriptures
These were a group of Christians in north-west Africa.
 During the persecutions of Diocletian they were ordered to surrender their sacred books to be burned.
 They refused and were subsequently martyred in 303.
 We now honor them as "the Guardians of the Holy Scriptures." Saint Augustine praised these martyrs.

Saint Humbeline
Humbeline was born in 1092 in Dijon, France. She was the younger sister of Saint Bernard of Clairvaux. She married the nobleman Guy de Marcy and lived the life of the nobility of the day. While visiting her brother one day, Saint Bernard reportedly reproved her for her lifestyle. She took his reproof to heart, undergoing a personal conversion. With permission from her husband, Humbeline became a nun at a Benedictine convent. She succeeded her sister in law. Elizabeth as abbess. Humeline lived a life of great austerity. She died at the convent in1135 in her brother's arms.

Saint Modomnoc
Modomnoc, who is sometimes called Domnock or Dominic, was born in Ireland in the 6th century. He was reportedly a member of the royal Irish family of O'Neil. He became a monk and went to Wales where he studied under Saint David of Wales. As a novice, he was a beekeeper and according to legend, when he returned to Ireland after studying with Saint David, swarms of bees left Wales to follow him. In this way, bees were introduced to the Emerald Isle.
Modomnoc settled in Kilkenny and is believed to have become a bishop of Ossory.
He died a natural death in 550
