Saint Asicus
Abbot

First bishop of the diocese of Elphin in Ireland.
Disciple of Saint Patrick.

Asicus is also called Ascicus, Assic and Tassach. He was a Coppersmith and silversmith. He was married when he first met Saint Patrick for whom he made crosiers, patens, chalices, credences and crosses for the many churches Saint Patrict founded. In time, he was made the first abbot and bishop of Elphin Monastery in the diocese of Elphin, Ireland in Roscommon.( According to Dictionary of Saints by John J. Delaney, Saint Asicus was the first bishop of Raholp Down, Ireland). A very humble man, he believed himself not worthy of the office; consequently, he went to an island in Donegal Bay where he became a hermit. After seven years, the monks of Elphin found him and persuaded him to return to the monastery. He died on the return journey in 490 at Raith Cungilor
(Racoon), Donega.l
According to Dictionary of Saints by John J. Delaney, Asicus gave the last rites to Saint Patrick when the latter was dying.

Sts. Lucidius and Asicus pray for us!

It's also St. Peter Canisius' day on the traditional calendar. Cheesy

'The heretics have made their false theology popular and presented it in a way that is within the capacity of the common people. They preach it to the people and teach it in the schools, and scatter pamphlets that can be bought and understood by many; they influence people by their writings when they cannot reach them by preaching. Their success is largely due to the negligence of those who should have shown some interest, and the bad example and the ignorance of Catholics, especially the clergy, have made such ravages in the vineyard of the Lord.'

St. Ignatius of Loyola, 'Letter to St. Peter Canisius'

'It behooves us unanimously and inviolably to observe the ecclesiastical traditions, whether codified or simply retained by the customary practice of the Church.'

Today is St. Paul of the Cross's day. Cheesy

'Suppose that you had fallen into the river, and that a charitable person threw himself into the water to save you. What would you say to such kindness? Moreover, suppose that, hardly drawn from the water, you had been attacked by assassins, and that your rescuer again came to your assistance, and saved your life at the risk of his own. What would you do in return for such friendship? It is certain that you would do all in your power to heal the bruises he received on your account. So ought we to act towards Christ: we must contemplate Him engulfed in an ocean of sorrows to save us from the eternal abyss; consider Him all covered with wounds and bruises to purchase for us eternal life. Then let us make His pains our own, sympathize with His sorrows, and consecrate to Him all our affections.'

'The days of the Passion are days when the very stones melt into tears. What! the High-Priest is dead, and we cannot weep over Him? We must have lost faith, O my God!'

St. Paul of the Cross

St. Paul of the Cross founded the Passionists order! At one point all the brothers of the Order deserted him.. Is this not like Christ?

It is. It confirms that those close to Jesus tend to suffer most.

Saint Pollio
Martyr.
Lector.

Pollio was a member of the Christian Community of Cybalae in Pannonia, a province on the Danube. He was serving as a lector. He became leader of the Christians there after Bishop Eusebius was martyred. When he defied the edicts of Emperor Diocletian and refused to sacrifice to the gods, he was condemned to death and burned at the stake in 304..
