Saint Severian
Martyr.

Severian was an Armenian senator in Sebaste, North Africa, during the persecution of Licinius Licinianus. He witnessed the martyrdom of the Forty Martyrs of Sebaste and was moved to proclaim his devotion to the Christian Faith. He was subsequently condemned and tortured to death by having iron rakes dragged across his body in 320.

It's interesting hearing about places in the past, that no longer are quite what they used to be, or that are quite far off, or whose names have disappeared from common us. Bithynia, Sebaste..

O Mary, may your name ever be upon our lips. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners.

Blessed be the name of Jesus, blessed be the name of Mary, blessed be the name of Joseph. . .
Our Father, hallowed be thy name!

Let us always keep what is holy, holy, and reject the terrible treatment of those to whom everything is profane, casual, and to be taken lightly!

Saint Amatus.
Amatus, who is also called Aime, Amad, Amat and Ame, was born into a noble family in 567 at Grenoble, France and taken to Saint Maurice abbey in Switzerland as a child. He lived there for thirty years. He became a Benedictine monk and lived as a hermit.
In 614, Amatus went to to Luxueil Monastery where he converted a Merovingian noble named Romaric to the Faith.
Romaric founded a double monastery in 620 at a place called Habendum (later renamed Remiremont). Amatus became its first abbot, spending the last years of his life there. He died in 630 at the monastery.

Saint Notburga
Patroness of poor peasants.
Notburga was born in 1265 at Rattenberg in the Tyrol, Austria. She was the daughter of poor peasants. At eighteen, she became a servant, specifically, a kitchen maid, in the household of Count Henry of Rattenberg. When Notburga repeatedly gave food to the poor, she was dismissed by Ottilia, the lady of the house. She went to work as servant to a humble farmer. Meanwhile, Henry started to experience a run of misfortunes and setbacks which he believed was a consequence of his wife’s dismissal of Notburga. When Ottilia died, Henry remarried and thereafter, wasted no time in rehiring Notburga. She spent the rest of her life as his housekeeper. She was famous for her miracles and concern for the poor.
She died on 16 September 1313.
Saint Notburga
