Saint Juliana Falconieri
One of the Founders ( foundress ) of the Servite Nuns, the "Mantellate."
Juliana was born in a very wealthy and noble family in 1270 in Florence, Italy . Her father, Chiarissimo Falconieri, died when she was very young. She was there after raised by her mother Riguirdata Falconieri and her uncle Alexis Falconieri.
According to SQPN, Juliana was “Given to chronic gastric problems throughout her life. Legend says she never gazed into a mirror, never looked at a man's face, trembled at the mention of sin, and fainted upon hearing scandalous gossip” Her uncle Saint Alexis reportedly once said that Juliana “grew up, more like an angel than a human being”
Juliana rejected her family’s plan for her to marry when she was 14. Her devotion to the sorrows of Our Lady drew her to the Servants of Mary and, at age fifteen, she became a Servite tertiary, receiving the habit from Saint Philip Benizi, her spiritual director. She continued to live at home. When her mother died in 1304, Juliana, with a group of women dedicated to prayer and charitable works, founded the Servite Order of Mary i.e. Servite Nuns, or the Mantellate Servites, She was named the firsr Superior of the Order. She is considered the Founder of the Order.
Juliana died on 12 June 1341 at Florence, Italy. Her relics  are at Saint Annunziata in Florence
She was beatified on 26 July 1678 by Pope Innocent XI and canonized on 16 June 1737 by Pope Clement XII .

Saint Florentina
abbess of Cartagena

Florentina, also known as Florence of Cartagena, was born in Cartagena, Spain. She was the sister of Saint Leander of Seville, Saint Fulgentius of Ecija and Saint Isidore of Seville. Florentina was orphaned young and was raised by her eldest brother, Leander. She reportedly consecrated herself to God, though when this was done is not known. She became Abbess of a convent Leander had founded for her in Cartagena.
Before he died, Leander wrote for Florentina some regulations to follow as a nun. This is how EWTN puts it:
“..In any case, it is certain that she had consecrated herself to God before the year 600, as her brother Leander, who died either in the year 600 or 601, wrote for her guidance an extant work dealing with a nun's rule of life and with contempt for the world ("Regula sive Libellus de institutione virginum et de contemptu mundi ad Florentinam sororem", P.L. LXXII, 873 sqq.). In it the author lays down the rules according to which cloistered virgins consecrated to God should regulate their lives. He strongly advises them to avoid" interacting "with women living in the world, and with men, especially youths; recommends strict temperance in eating and drinking, gives advice concerning the reading of and meditation on Holy Scripture, enjoins equal love and friendship for all those living together in community, and exhorts his sister earnestly to remain true to her holy state….”
Florentina heeded her brother’s advice and led a holy life which ended in 636 when she died.

In the Middle ages, Lazurus’ name was perpetuated by such Italian words as lazaretto, a hospital; lazarone, a beggar in the street. There was also a military Order of Saint Lazarus, founded in the 12th century,  dedicated to the care of lepers. Saint Lazarus is its patron. He is also patron saint of those suffering leprosy.

Has anyone wondered about Saint Lazarus? At the Saints thread at CAF, Reginator raised the point that the story of Lazarus in the Bible according to Saint Luke is a parable, not fact; and yet here we have him appearing on the Comprehensive Calender.
According to Haydock's Catholic Bible Commentary, St. Ambrose did not take it as a parable but a real fact.

Saint Flavius Clemens
Martyr

Flavius was a brother of the Emperor Vespasian, an uncle of Emperor Titus and Emperor Domitian, who were Vespasian’s successors as emperors. He married Flavia Domitilla, a niece of Domitian. Flavius enjoyed imperial favor and was consul with Domitian in 95. The following year however, when Domitian learnt he was a Christian, he and Flavia were arrested for promoting the Christian faith. Both were condemned with several friends including Euphrosyna and Theodora. They were beheaded.

According to Haydock's Catholic Bible Commentary, St. Ambrose did not take it as a parable but a real fact.

I'd believe St. Ambrose over a poster at CAF. The fact that the Lord mentioned him by name (if it were a parable He could have simply referred to him as "a poor man") is more consistant with St. Ambrose' view.

The poster was " Reginator". He is a member here as well. He was not doubting but just wanted to know if Lazarus was a real man as he always thought, same as I , that it was a parable that Jesus told.  Now we know of course that Lazarus was real.
Saint Lazarus,
