Saint Lucian and Saint Marcian
Martyrs

Lucian and his friend Marcian were magicians involved in the practice of black magic. They reportedly converted to Christianity when a Christian fended off Lucian’s spells by making the sign of the Cross. They publicly burned their magic paraphernalia in Nicomedia. They sold all their possessions and gave the proceeds to the poor. They lived as recluses for some time and then started preaching. When Emperor Trajanus Decius’ edict against Christians were published in Bithynia, Turkey, they were arrested and arraigned before the Proconsul Sabinus. When they refused to worship pagan gods, they were tortured and burned to death. This happened in 250.
According to Our Sunday Visitor Encyclopedia Of Saints. there were other companions who shared in this martyrdom. One of them was named as Florins.
This account was taken mostly from “Dictionary of Saints by John J. Delaney”.
Canonization was pre-congregation.

Saint Joachim Royo
Martyr.

Joachim was born 1691 at Teruel, Spain. He joined the Dominicans in 1709 and in 1712, he was sent as a missionary to the Philippines and from there he was sent to China in 1715. In China he worked with Saint Peter Sanz, a fellow Spanish Dominican priest. In 1746, renewed persecutions of Christians flared up in China. He was imprisoned together with Saint Peter Sanz and Father John Alcobar. They were soon joined by Father Francis Serrano and Father Francis Diaz.
Father Joachim was tortured and strangled to death on 28 October 1748 in prison at Fu-tsheu, China.
He was beatified as one of the martyrs of China on 14 May 1893 by Pope Leo XIII and canonized on 1 October 2000 by Pope John Paul II.

Saint Abraham of Rostov
Abraham was born in Galich, Russia sometime in the 12th century ( 10th century according to SQPN) He was born a pagan and given the name of Averkii.
As a young man, he was reportedly stricken with a severe disease. He called upon Christ in his sufferings and, lo and behold, he was  cured! In gratitude, Averkii became a Christian and was baptized, taking the name Abraham.
He subsequently became a monk and went to the city of Rostov, where he began his ministry among the pagans. He founded there a monastery of which he became abbot. He also built two churches in Rostov. Abraham was reportedly very active and effective in converting the pagans to Christianity.
