Today I have decided to post two Saints.
As you know, there are usually many saints listed on a single day. We never get to hear about many of these saints. One such saint is
Saint Anselm of Lucca the Younger
He was
Bishop of Lucca
Nephew of Pope Alexander II

Anselm was born in 1036 at Mantua, Italy.
He was called the Younger by his contemporaries. He was the nephew of Anselm of Lucca the Elder who became Pope Alexander II in 10 61.
Anselm was named Bishop of Lucca in 1073 by his uncle Pope Alexander who had just vacated the see. He reluctantly accepted the investiture.by Emperor Henry IV. He soon regretted accepting the symbol of his office from Emperor Henry IV, a lay man. He resigned from his office and retired to the monastery of Cluniac at Polirone where he became a Benedictine monk. He was recalled by Pope Gregory VII. Anselm soon had a conflict with his canons over lack of observance of an austere life (the Gregorian reform began by the Pope, which he was vigorously enforcing). The conflict led to the excommunication of the canons who, in turn revolted against Anselm. They had the support of the emperor. In 1079, Anselm was driven from his see. He retired to Canossa, Italy, and became the spiritual director of Countess Matilda of Tuscany. Anselm was a firm supporter of Pope Gregory VII’s struggles to end lay investiture. After Gregory’s death, Pope Victor III appointed him papal legate to Lombardy.
Anselm wrote a treatise against lay investiture, Contra Guibertum et Sequaces ejus.
He died on 18 March 1086 at Mantua, Italy.

Saint Alkmund of Northumbria
Prince.
Martyr.

He is also known as Alcmund of Northumbria. Alcmund was born in 774 in northern England.
He was the son of Saint Alhred ( Alcred) King of Northumbria, England. Accounts vary somewhat but his father Alcred and his brother Osred were reportedly murdered in 792 and according to Our Sunday Visitor’s Encyclopedia of Saints, by Matthew Bunson, Margaret Bunson, and Stephen Bunson, he was exiled to Scotland where he lived among the Picts. According to Dictionary of Saints by John J. Delaney, he was killed in 800 Shropshire, England while attempting to regain his father’s throne.
The circumstances of his death reportedly gave rise to the designation of martyrdom.
Miracles were reported at his tomb in Lilleshall after his death. He was first venerated at Lilleshall and then in Derby, England.
Saint Alcmund,

Prayer to Saint Joseph
Blessed Joseph, husband of Mary,
be with us today.
You protected and cherished the Virgin,
loving the Child Jesus as your Son,
you rescued Him from danger of death.
Defend the Church, the household of God,
purchased by the blood of Christ.
Guardian of the Holy Family,
be with us in our trials.
May your prayers obtain for us the
strength to flee from error and wrestle with
the powers of corruption, so that in life, we may grow in holiness
and in death, rejoice in the crown of victory.
Amen!

Paulines Publications Africa

Saint Herbert of Derwentwater
Herbert was a priest in England in the 7th century. He was a disciple and close friend of of Saint Cuthbert. He lived as a hermit on an island in Lake Derwentwater, England. The island was later named Saint Herbert’s Island in his honor. Every year, Saint Herbert visited Saint Cuthbert at Lindisfarne. According to SQPN, in 686 Cuthbert visited Herbert on his island and told his friend that he had foreseen that he would soon die. The two prayed to die at the same time. Soon after, Herbert reportedly became ill. They both died on 20 March 687.

Saint Serapion the Scholastic.
Bishop and head of the famed catechetical school of Alexandria, Egypt. He is also known as Serapion of Arsinoe and also as Serapion of Thmuis ( Thumis). He is called “the Scholastic” because of his learning. Serapion was at first, a monk in the Egyptian desert and a friend and companion of Saint Anthony. If you remember, Saint Anthony left in his will, the gift of two sheepskin cloaks. One was for Serapion and the other was for Athanasius of Alexandria. Serapion was called from the desert to be bishop of Thmuis, Lower Egypt on the Nile delta. He was a close friend of Saint Athanasius and actively supported him against the Arians in Egypt.
He attended the Council of Sardis in 347. Besides Arianism, Serapion also fought against Manichaeism.
Serapion was a brilliant scholar and a theologian. He had a series of writings to his name, viz
He wrote a treatise against the Manichaeans; a treatise on the titles of the Psalms; a sacramentary called the Euchologium and a collection of liturgical prayers.
He was exiled by the ardent Arian Emperor Constantius II for his opposition to Arianism and his support of Saint Athanasius.
He died in exile in 370.
He was canonized Pre-Congregation.
Because of his opposition to Arianism, Serapion was exiled for a time by the Emperor Constantius II
