Saint Isaac
Hermit.

Isaac, a hermit, went to Constantinople to protest to Arian Emperor Valens about his persecutions of Christians! He prophesied disaster for the Emperor if he persisted in the persecutions. He narrowly escaped death as he was arrested but set free by Emperor Theodosius when Valens was killed in the battle of Adrianople in 378 by the Visigoths. His prediction thus came to pass.
Isaac resumed his eremitical life and attracted so many disciples that he was obliged to found a monastery for them at Constantinople where he also attended the second General Council ( First Council of Constantinople) held there in 381. It was at this General Council the Arian cause was finally defeated.
Isaac died in 410 at Constantinople and was canonized pre-congragationally.

Saint Camilla Battista Varani.
Camilla is also known as Attista Varano and Camilla da Varano. She was born on 9 April 1458 in Camerino, Italy. She was of noble birth; her father being the prince of Camerino, Italy. She was baptized Camille. She received a fine education for a woman in those days. Camilla was expected to marry but she decided her vocation was that of a religious life. She joined the Poor Clare in Urbino, taking the name Battista in 1481 and began to experience revelations on the Passion of Our Lord. Her father built a convent for Poor Clares at Camarino to which she was moved. Blessed Peter of Mogliano became her spiritual director. In the following years, Camilla experienced extraordinary revelations and visitations, mainly concerning the Passion and death of Christ. The revelations alternated with periods of spiritual aridity and desolation. She found a Poor Clare convent at Fermo, but after a year, she returned to Camarino where she remained until her death on 31 May 1524.
Camilla wrote the “The Sufferings of the Agonizing Heart of Jesus”, describing her revelations on the Passion and a series of instructions on how to attain perfection.
She was canonized on 17 October 2010 Pope Benedict XVI.

JUNE

The month of June is traditionally dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.


O Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in Thee,
Whatever may befall me, Lord, though dark the hour may be;
In all my woes, in all my joys, though nought but grief I see,
O Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in Thee.

When those I love have passed away, and I am sore distressed,
0 Sacred Heart of Jesus, I fly to Thee for rest.
In all my trials, great or small, my confidence shall be
Unshaken as I cry, dear Lord, I place my trust in Thee.

This is my one sweet prayer, dear Lord, my faith, my trust, my love,
But most of all in that last hour, when death points up above,
O sweet Saviour, may Thy face smile on my soul all free.
Oh may I cry with rapturous love, I've placed my trust in Thee.
