Saint Madeline Sophie Barat
Foundress of: the Society of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Madeline was born on 12 December 1779 at Joigny, Bugundy, France. She was educated strictly by her older brother Louis, who later became a priest and who imposed the strictest discipline and penances on her. On his recommendation, Father Joseph Varin, who planned to form an institute of women to teach girls( a female counterpart of Jesuits, as ‘A Dictionary of Saints’ puts it), received her and three other companions into the religious life in 1800, thereby founding the Society of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, devoted to the Sacred Heart, and dedicated to teaching girls.
They founded their first convent and school at Amiens the following year and in 1802, Madeline, though the youngest member of the group at 23 years of age, was appointed superior. She was destined to rule for 63 years. The society spread throughout France.
Saint Rose Phillippine Duschesne brought the Society to the United States in 1818. 
The Society received formal approval from Pope Leo XII in 1826. In 1830, Madeline moved the novitiate to Switzerland because of the instability of the French political life. By the time of her death on 25 May 1865 at Paris, she had opened more than one hundred houses and schools in twelve countries,
She was canonized on 24 May 1925 by Pope Pius XI.

Saint Julius of Dorostorum
Martyr

He is also known as Saint Julius the Veteran. Julius was a retired soldier of the Roman army during the reign of Emperor Dioclatian.
He was accused of being a Christian at Dorostorum on the Danube at Silistnia( in modern Romania). When he did not deny his faith, he was beheaded on May 27, 302. On the way to his martyrdom, he was encouraged by a fellow Christian soldier, Hesychius who was executed a few days later.
Two days before Julius was beheaded, i.e. on 25 May 302, two other Christians, Pasicrates and Valentino had also been martyred for their faith,

St. Augustine's Prayer to the Holy Spirit

Breathe in me, O Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may all be holy.
 Act in me, O Holy Spirit, that my work, too, may be holy.
 Draw my heart, O Holy Spirit, that I love but what is holy.
Strengthen me, O Holy Spirit, to defend all that is holy.
Guard me, then, O Holy Spirit, that I always may be holy.
 Amen.

The patron Saint of mountaineers.

His duties included visiting alpine regions and doing missionary work there. He built schools and churches in the diocese. He is especially remembered for two Alpine hospices he built to aid lost travelers in the mountain passes. The hospices were named the Great and the Little Bernard after him.
He died in 1008 at Novara, Italy and was canonized in 1681 by Pope Innocent XI.
Pope Pius XI proclaimed him the patron saint of mountain climbers in 1923.
