Yes, the name "Sacerdos" means priest or priestess.
I do not know why the word priestess is somehow associated with the occult in my mind.
Maybe because we do not have them in the Church  Smiley

A good reason I am thinking!

St. Lucius and St. Sacerdos, pray for us!

Lucius comes from the word for light, if I recall correctly. Like St. Lucy for eyes. Cheesy

Saint Agostino Roscelli
Priest

Founder of the Sisters of the Immaculate

Agostino was born on 27 July 1818  to a poor family at Liguria, Italy. For much of his youth, he was a shepherd in the mountains. As we have seen many times in the past, the solitary life and long hours of the shepherd is beneficial to spiritual growth. Agostino responded to a call to the priesthood and joined a seminary at Genoa. He was ordained on 19 September 1846. He proved to be a gifted confessor to whom many people flocked for penance and counsel; spent long hours at a time in the confessional and was especially trusted by the young.
To provide care for the many poor young women in Genoa, especially those women at risk of falling into prostitution, Father Agostino established a residential center in the city. It was so successful that he founded the Institute of Sisters of the Immaculata to provide the support needed for the many young women who found their way into the care of the centers that sprang up across Italy.
The foundation was supported by Pope Pius IX. The Sisters of the Immaculate continue to serve disable children and the elderly.
Agostino died on  7 May 1902 at Genoa, Italy. He was canonized on 10 June 2001 by Pope John Paul II.

Saint Beatus
Monk and Hermit.

Saint Beatus was earlier  known as the “Apostle of Switzerland.” He was reportedly baptized in England by Saint Barnabas and ordained  in Rome by Saint Peter who sent him to evangelize the Swiss. Accordingly he went to Swizerland where he lived and died in a cave on Mount Beatenburg above lake Thun.
According to legend, Beatus had the mother of all fights with a dragon which he killed.
 The cave where the struggle took place subsequently became a popular destination for pilgrims.
He died in 112 on Mount Beatenburg as mentioned above.

St. Beatus, St. Gibrian, St.Agostino, pray for us!

St. Tressan, St. Helan, St. Germanus, St. Abran, St. Petran, St. Franca, St. Promptia, and St. Possenna pray for us!

So many saints!

I hear that shepherding is becoming popular again in some places.

I hope more and more people realize that we are meant to live simpler lives.

This world with so much bureaucracy and complication.. it is not good for us to live so separated from the more natural lives we're made for..
