St. Elzear and St. John of Meda pray for us!

The Little Office of Our Lady is a very pretty devotion. I should try it again I am thinking.

I never heard of this devotion until I read about it in connection with Saint John of Meda.

Saint Maria Chiara
Martyr
Maria Chiara was born on 9 January 1872 at Santa Maria Maddalena in the province of Rovigo, Italy. Her given name was Clelia Nanette.
From all accounts, Clelia was a pretty girl, intelligent, high spirited, impulsive and simply bubbling with life; a girl loved by all. She had a quick grasp of everything.
After her primary school, she helped in the house. Her parents were hoping she would marry. But Clelia had already felt the call to a religious life and privately, she had made a vow of chastity.
When she was 18 years old, she asked permission to enter religious life, but her parents refused thinking she was not old enough to really know what she wanted. But Clelia knew what she wanted, so she persevered, never losing sight of this goal. On 24 January 1892, with the help of her brother Barnabé, a Franciscan, she joined the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary and took the name of Maria Chiara. "Clare" (clear).
In 1898, Francisco Fogolla , the auxiliary Bishop of Shanxi, China, requested for missionaries from the Institute. Mother Mary of the Passion, foundress of the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary, responded to this cry for help. She nominated seven sisters to go to Shanxi. Their mission was to serve the poor in hospitals, and care for the unwanted or other destitutes in orphanages and to help in whatever way possible to lessen the burden of the unfortunates there. Sister Maria Chiara was one of these seven nuns.
In China, during the country’s periodic crackdown on foreign missionaries, the seven nuns all perished, martyred.
Sister Maria Chiara was beheaded on 9 July 1900 at Taiyuanfu, China. Reportedly, she was the first to receive the mortal blow.
Saint Maria Chiara is counted among the Martyrs of Shanxi whose combined memorial is on 8 July, and the Martyrs of China.
She was beatified on 24 November 1946 by Pope Pius XII and canonized on 1 October 2000 by Pope John Paul II .
Saint Maria Chiara,

Blessed Richard Rolle.
Richard Rolle, also known as Richard Rolle de Hampole, was born at Thornton, Yorkshire, England around the year 1300. As a schoolboy, Richard was such a promising youngster that Archdeacon of Durham, Thomas de Neville under took to pay for his education at Oxford. Richard also studied in Paris, France from 1320 to 1326. On his return to England, he lived as a hermit in a wooded area near his home and within his family's estate. When some members of his family threatened to have him committed, he moved to the estate of his friend and college classmate John Dalton of Pickering. After several years of contemplation, Richard started wondering across England. He finally settled down in Hampole near a Cistercian community for nuns. He was able to assist in the spiritual development of these nuns. It was here at Hampole that he died on 29 September 1349..
Richard was reportedly very well known during the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries and his writings widely read. Said to be one of the first religious writers to use the vernacular. His works included letters, commentaries on scripture, and treaties on spiritual perfection. His best known writing was said to be De Incendio Amoris (On the Flame of Love). He also wrote a poem, Pricke of Conscience.
Miracles were reported at his tomb.

Saint Honoratus
Archbishop of Canterbury

Honoratus, or Honorius was born in Rome. He became a benedictine monk. He was sent as a missionary to England by Pope Gregory the Great at the request of Saint Augustine of Canterbury. He was named Archbishop of Canterbury in 627 and governed that see for about 25 years. He was granted authority to consecrate bishops by Pope Honorius I. He gave refuge to Saint Paulinus when he fled Caedwalla of Wales who had defeated and killed King Edwin.; he also named him bishop of Rochester. When Paulinus died in 644, Honorius appointed as his successor Saint Ithamar, the first English born bishop.
Honorius died on September 30, 653 at Canterbury, England.

October 2 is also the Memorial  for  The Holy Guardian Angels
Prayer:
Quote
O Most faithful companion, appointed by God to be my guardian, and who never leave my side, how shall I thank you for your faithfulness and love and for the benefits which you have obtained for me! You watch over me when I sleep; you comfort me when I am sad; you avert the dangers that threaten me
and warn me of those to come; you withdraw me from sin and inspire me to good; you exhort me to penance when I fall and reconcile me to God.
I beg you not to leave me. Comfort me in adversity, restrain me in prosperity, defend me in danger, and assist me in temptations, lest at any time I fall beneath them. Offer up in the sight of the Divine Majesty my prayers and petitions, and all my works of piety, and help me to persevere in grace until I come to everlasting life. Amen.
