Quote
The two priests worked together to bring the Coptic Christians into communion with Rome. A synod of Coptics in 1637, to discuss reunion failed dismally reportedly because many Catholics in Cairo at the time were notorious for their dissolute lifestyles; from the French consul down through his staff, to the others in the consulate.

I talk to my Egyptian Coptic Orthodox neighbors and learn a few things. Egypt now has majority Muslims. My neighbor told me how the Muslims invaded years back and persecuted the Coptic Orthodox. If anyone spoke Coptic their tongues were cut off by the Muslim invaders. So now in the present time Coptic has been wiped out and only Arabic is spoken. Even my neighbor speaks Arabic.
We must pray for the return of these people to the Roman Catholic Church. I see their strong faith, orthodoxy and piety but they still need to return to Rome , to the Vicar of Christ on earth.  crucifix

Absolutely!

Saints Firmus and Rusticus
Martyrs.

According to Our Sunday Visitor Encyclopedia Of Saints.
the two were martyrs of Bergamo, Lombardy in Italy. Sources differ however, as according to SQPN , the two were born in North Africa.
They were supposedly related to each other and prominent citizens of Bergamo. They were martyred in 290 in Verona during the severe persecutions of Emperor Maximian in that region.

Saint Alexander of Comana
Bishop and Martyr.

Alexander was born Greek and pagan. He was well born and well educated. He converted to Christianity while still in his native land, subsequently going to Comana, Pontus in Asia Minor. Here, he chose to be a Charcoal Burner. He did this to practice humility. Because of this trade, he is also known as Alexander the Charcoal Burner( Carbonarius). Alexander was chosen by Saint Gregory Thaumaturgus to be the bishop of Comana, Pontus, located along the Southern Black sea. Saint Gregory had interviewed many candidates for the bishopric but was unable to find a suitable candidate. When Alexander’s name was derisively suggested, he interviewed him and found him a wise and holy man worthy of being a bishop.
Alexander was burned alive for his faith in 275 at Comana during Decius' persecution of Christians.
Saint Alexander,

Martyr.

He is also known as Gratiliano. He was a Christian in prison in Faleria, Italy, awaiting execution for his faith during the Diocletian persecution of Christians in the Roman Empire. He cured a young blind girl named Felicissima. She was so amazed at the miracle and holiness of Gracillian that she converted to the Christian faith. She was promptly arrested and both were beheaded.304.

St. Gracilian, St. Felicissima, pray for us!

What a fine name, sounds of 'grace' in English. Cheesy

And I believe Felicissima's name root means 'happy'.

Saint Cassian
Martyr,

Cassian was a Christian teacher at Imola, near Ravenna in Italy( Date unknown except that it was in the 4th century).
He was brought before the governor of the province during the persecutions of Christians. He was ordered to sacrifice to pagan gods. He refused. He was hacked to death by his students by order of the governor. Prudentius reportedly recorded the grisly martyrdom of Saint Cassian, noting that the students could not wield mortal blows, thus prolonging his agony.

St. Cassian, pray for us!

I wonder how many would refuse today? Some folks seem to think it's a good thing for everyone to do together!

St. Cassian reminds me of St. John Cassian.

Sts. Cassian, pray for our grace and virtue!
