Saint Sunniva
She is also known as Sunnifa, Synnove of Norway and Sunniva of Bergen.
According to an old legend, she was an Irish princess, daughter of a tenth century Irish king. She reportedly fled her homeland with her brother Alban and several companions to escape marriage. They were shipwrecked on the island of Selje, off the coast of Norway. The runaways lived peacefully in a cave until one day, their local neighbors, sent an armed force against them after some cattle were discovered missing. When the warriors arrived at the cave, they found there had been a land slide which had sealed up the cave.
In 995, King Olaf Tryggvason ordered the cave opened. The incorrupt body of Sunniva was discovered. The king built a church in her honour and the body was moved there.
Saint Sunniva,

Saint Olga of Kiev.
Also known as Helena, Helga, Olga Prekrasa, Olga the Beauty and Olha.
 She was born in 879 at Pskov, Russia. In 903, she married Igor I duke of Kiev, a Varangarian prince. After her husband’s assassination in
in 945, Olga took over the reign of the country and exacted a bloody revenge on her husband’s assassins. She had them scalded to death and hundreds of their supporters were murdered. She ruled the country ably as regent for her son, Svyastoslav until he came of age on 964. Olga then became a Christian. She was baptized at Constantinople about 957 and changed her lifestyle. She devoted herself to converting the Russian people to Christianity but sadly, she was not very successful as she was not even able to convert her own son, Svyastoslav. Her efforts did lay some of the groundwork for the far more fruitful efforts of her grandson Prince Saint Vladimir.
She died on 11 July 969 in Kiev.

Saint Veronica
Veronica was the woman of Jerusalem who wiped the face of Jesus Christ with a veil when He was on His way to Calvary.
According to legend, when Christ was carrying His Cross to Calvary, an unknown woman offered Him a cloth to wipe His brow, and when He returned it to her, it bore the imprint of His Face. In time, this unknown woman came to be known as “Veronica” (Vera-true; icon-image). What happened to her after this incident is told in a variety of legends. In one version, she went to Rome and cured Emperor Tiberius with her relic. In another version, she is the wife of Zacchaeus, the tax collector who climbed the sycamore tree in Luke 19:1-10; and other versions also exist. Suffice it to say that there is no factual information about her, only the fact that she wiped the Lord’s Face and Jesus rewarded her with His holy image imprinted on the cloth.
On her death, Veronica bequeathed the holy relic to Pope Saint Clement.
The relic is still preserved in Saint Peter’s and the memory of Veronica’s act of charity is commemorated in the Stations of the Cross. She is represented by a woman holding a cloth that bears the image of Christ’s face

Here's an unfinished page on devotion to the Holy Face, not completed so not off the main website, but since it's St. Veronica's day perhaps people will like reading bits of it here..

I very much find myself full of the thought expressed in the revelations of St. Gertrude about works of charity exceeding sins..

It makes me think of filling up the moments with little works of charity, rather than anything that is focused on the self one's own desires. But how to begin! And how to continue?

Saint Clelia Barbieri
Founder of the Little Sisters of Our Lady of Sorrows.

Clelia, also known as Cloelia Barbieri, was born on 13 February 1847 in Budrio, Emilia, Italy. She was the daughter of Joseph and Hyacintha Nanetti Barbieri. From her earliest life, Clelia paid no attention to this world, only the spiritual life mattered and she was focused on this.
She founded the Little Sisters on May 1, 1864. The archbishop of Bologna, Lucida Maria Cardinal Parocchi, blessed the Little Sisters and their work which was to minister to the sick, the elderly , the lonely and the poor. The members of Clelia’s congregation are also called the Minims of Our Lady of Sorrows.
Clelia died very suddenly on 13 July 1870 at the age of 23 at Bundrio, Italy. She reportedly died of tuberculosis. Since her death, her voice has been mysteriously heard singing along with the nuns, in the convents she founded.
She was canonized on 9 April 1989 by Pope John Paul II. Clelia is the patron of people ridiculed for their piety.
