Saint Agrippina of Rome
Martyr.

Also known as Agrippina of Mineo, She reportedly came from a good Roman family. She  consecrated herself to God. Agrippina was a victim of the persecutions instituted by Emperor Valerian and Gallienus. She was either beheaded or scourged to death in Rome (Records vary about how she met her martyrdom). Her body was taken to Mineo Sicily by three devout Christian women. The gravesite became a popular pilgrimage destination noted for the many miracles that took place through her intercession.
Saint Agrippina,

Saint Eurosia
Martyr.

Also known as Orosia, Eurosia was born in Bayonne, France. She was promised to a Moor in an arranged marriage. Eurosia refused to marry a Saracen. She went and hid herself in a cave, unfortunately for her, the smoke from her fire betrayed her position.

Saint Pelagius of Oviedo
Martyr

Also known as Pelagius the Martyr and Pelayo. He was born in 912 at Asturias, Spain. His uncle left him, when still a child, as hostage to the Saracens of Cordoba. As he remained unransomed for three years, the Cordoban ruler Caliph Abd al-Rahman III offered to free him if he would but renounce his Christianity and become a Muslim. Pelagius refused. The emir ordered him tortured. The thirteen year old died in 925 after six hours of agony. According to Our Sunday Visitor Encyclopedia Of Saints.
By Matthew Bunson, Stephen Bunson, Margaret Bunson, Rhoswitha of Gandersheim, a Benedictine poetess, composed a poem in his honor.

Blessed Madeleine Fontaine
Madeleine was born in 1723 at Etepagny, France. She joined the Sister of Charity of Saint Vincent de Paul in 1748 . She was Superior of the convent at Arras in 1767 when she, Francoise Lanel, Therese Fantou and Joan Gerard, all sisters at the same convent were arrested by the French Revolutionary authorities. When they refused to take the Constitutional Oath, they were accused, on trumped up charges, of counter-revolutionary activities. Madeleine was convicted of the charges by a tribunal at Cambrai, and the other three, of being accomplices. All four were guillotined in 1794 at Cambrai, France.
They were beatified on June 1920 by Pope Benedict XV
Canonization is pending.
