Blessed Herluin
Herluin was born in Normandy, France
in the year 994. He was raised to be a soldier.
He became a knight at the court of the Count of Brionne, Normandy. Herluin gave up his knighthood to become a Benedictine monk.
He became Abbot of an abbey he founded at his estate at Bonneville. The abbey was moved to a new site on the banks of the Bec River in Normandy in 1014. He developed it into one of the most influential centers of learning of the Middle Ages.
Herluin died on August 26, 1078. According to Dictionary of Saints by John J. Delaney, “ though often referred to as Blessed, he has never been beatified formally”

Saint Nemesius and
Saint Lucilla
Martyrs.

These were two Romans put to death under Emperor Valerian. Nemesius was a Deacon in Rome and Lucilla was his daughter. She was reportedly healed from an unspecified illness by Pope Saint Stephen I. The miracle caused father and daughter to convert to Christianity. For this they were both beheaded in 260 in Rome.
Saint Nemesius,

Saint Lucilla,

Saint Margaret the Barefooted
Margaret was born in 1325 at
San Severino, Ancona, Italy . She was born into a poor family. At the age of 15, Margaret was married to “an Italian gentleman”.  according to SQPN. Her husband ill treated her for many years for her piety and her ministry to the poor. She suffered through it all patiently, with prayers and penance. She gained her name from the habit she had of begging for alms for the poor, barefooted, just like the beggars were, for whom she begged.
She died in 1395.
Saint Margaret,

Moses the Black.
Hermit.
Martyr.

His story is quite something. He is
also called Moses the Ethiopian .
Moses was born a slave in 330, to the family of an Egyptian official. He grew up to be an evil, violent man, eventually being dismissed from the service of the Egyptian official because of his viciousness, thievery and evil propensities. He became the leader of a notorious band of outlaws who terrorized the area until he was forced to hide from the
authorities in the Egyptian desert of Skete in the delta region. There, Moses
underwent a total reformation. He repented his violent ways and became a hermit
at the Petra monastic community. He was ordained by Theophilus of Alexandria
and lived as one of the most revered hermits of Egypt.
Moses died in 405 , murdered , with six other monks, by a band of
marauding Berbers, when he refused to defend himself by use of force.
Saint Moses,
