Saint Benezet
Benezet, who is also known as Benedict the Bridge Builder, Benet and Benoit, was born in 1163 in Savoy, France. He was a shepherd in Avignon. He reportedly had a vision that told him to build a bridge over the Rhone River at a dangerous ford. The bishop of Avignon reluctantly gave him permission and Benedict started the work in 1177. The bridge was completed in 1188, four years after his death.
So many miracles took place at his tomb and during the construction of the bridge that a chapel was built on the bridge for his relics.

Saint Drogo
Patron of Shepherds

Drogo, also known as Dreux, Drugo or Druon was born in 1105 of noble Flemish parents. His mother died giving birth to him, i.e, he was orphaned at birth. At the age of 18, Drogo became a penitent pilgrim, visiting several shrines. He worked for six years as a shepherd at Sebourg near Valencienne in France. He was revered by his neighbors for his holiness.
Drogo resumed his pilgrimages after six years. He was reportedly stricken with a disease that made him physically repulsive. He built a hut at Sebourg and lived there as a hermit for 40 years until his death.
He is the patron of shepherds.
Saint Drogo,

Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha
She is also known as Catherine Tekakwitha and as Lily of the Mohawks.
Kateri was born in 1656 in the Indian village of Osserneon, Auriesville, New York, USA. This was actually the site of the martyrdom of Saint Isaac Jogues and Saint Jean de Lalande in 1646. Remember the eight Holy North American Martyrs, members of The Society of Jesus?
Kateri was the daughter a Christian Native American woman who had been captured by Iroquois Indians and married to a non-Christian Mohawk chief. Her parents died in a smallpox epidemic which left her partially blind and disfigured.
Kateri was converted to Catholicism in 1676 by Father Jacques de Lamberville, a Jesuit missionary priest. Following her conversion, her relatives and the other Indians Shunned and abused her for her Faith. Afraid for her very life, Kateri fled her native village and trekked some 200 miles through the wilderness to the Christian Indian village of Sault Sainte Marie, near Montreal Canada in 1677.
Kateri received her First Holy Communion on Christmas of that year. She lived a life of holiness and austerity. In 1679, Kateri took a vow of Chastity and dedicated herself to Christ.
She died on 17 April 1680 at Caughnawaga, Canada.
She was venerated for her holiness. Known as the Lily of the Mohawks, many miracles were attributed to her.
She was declared venerable on 3 January 1943 by Pope Pius XII; beatified on 22 June 1980 by Pope John Paul II.
Canonization is pending.

St. George, pray for us!

I find the iconoclast heresy interesting, because it makes me think more about the necessity of art lifting the mind towards Heaven rather than fixating it upon earth.

Saint Agnes of Montepulciano
Agnes was born in 1268 at Gracchiano-Vecchio, Tuscany, Italy. As early as age six, Agnes started telling her parents she wanted to become a nun. She was able to enter the convent at nearby Montepulciano at age nine. When a new convent was opened at Procena, she was transferred there and soon became abbess although she was only fifteen at the time. Many women joined the convent attracted by the sanctity and austerity of her life.
In 1300, the people of Montepulciano built a new convent and Agnes returned there as prioress of the new convent which she put under the Dominican rule.
Agnes was famous for her visions. Reportedly, she received Communion from an angel; held the Infant Christ in her arms; experienced levitations and performed many miracles.
She died on 20 April 1317 at the convent of Montepulciano.
She was canonized in 1726 by Pope Benedict XIII

What a beautiful sounding life!

One of the interesting feasts remembered today:

"the Seven Angels who stand before God's throne"

'For I am the angel Raphael, one of the seven, who stand before the Lord.'

Tobias 12:15

'And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was made silence in heaven, as it were for half an hour. 2 And I saw seven angels standing in the light of God: and there were given to them seven trumpets. '

Apocalypse 8:1-2

I wonder why the memorial was removed from the calender; 
You have caught my interest Shin, I will read a little about them since I do not know much and post what I find.
