Saint Ansegius
Ansegius was born around the year 770 in Lyonnais, France. At the age of eighteen, he became a Benedictine monk at Fontenelle. One of his his relatives, Saint Girowald, was abbot there and saw that Ansegius was a holy man with learning. He sponsored him before Emperor Charlemagne who appointed him to reform the Saint Sixtus abbey near Rheims and Saint Memius in a place called Chalone-sur-Marne in France. Ansegius did his best and Charlemagne was so pleased with his effort and what he achieved that he appointed Ansegius abbot of Floy or Saint Germer, in the Bauvais region of France.
Under Louis the Pious, Charlemagne’s son and heir, Ansegius became abbot of Fontenelle in 823. He reigned for 10 years during which period, he supervised the building of a great library in Rouen which became renowned for its vast collection of original works.  Ansegius also wrote treaties on the religious life.
He died on July 20, 833 or 834.

Saint Praxedes
According to legend, Praxedes, whose birth date is unknown, was the daughter of a Roman senator named Pudens, and the sister of Saint Prudentiana. She reportedly helped care for and hide Christians during the reign of Emperor Marcus Aurelius. She died on July 21, 164 in Rome. She was buried in the catacombs of Saint Priscilla, near Saint Prudentiana. Scholars have shown doubt that the two were actually sisters or that Pudens was even her father. A basilica in Rome is dedicated to her and her relics are there in the Saint Praxedes Church.

Saint Romula
Romula was a hermitess. She lived with Saint Redempta, who was raised and instructed in the life of a hermitess by Saint Herundo in Palestine. The two, together with another woman, lived near the church Mary Major in Rome in about 575. They formed a small community in Rome, earning the praise of Pope Saint Gregory I, also known as Gregory the Great. For the last years of her life, Romula was stricken with paralysis and was bedridden.
She died in 580

Saint Christina the Astonishing
Christina the Astonishing is also known as Christina Mirabilis. She was born to a peasant family in 1150 at Brusthem near Liege, Belgium. She was orphaned when three years old and was raised by two older sisters. When Christiana was about 21, she had an epileptic fit and it seemed like she died in the attack and was pronounced dead. During her funeral Mass, however, Christina suddenly soared to the roof of the church. When the priest ordered her to come down, she did so. She said that she had been to hell, purgatory, and heaven, and had been allowed to return to earth to pray for the suffering souls in purgatory. This was just one of the astonishing events that reportedly took place during her lifetime.
She could not stand the odor of other people , in other words, she could smell sin and to avoid human contact or smell, she resorted to such extraordinary means as climbing trees, soaring up, and reportedly, even hiding in ovens! etc. She lived a life of poverty and was thought to be insane by many though others venerated her.
Christina spent the last years of her life in Saint Catherine’s convent at Saint Trond, where she died on 24 July 1224.
She is patron against against insanity,
Saint Christina,

If the miracle of her coming to life after being pronounced dead had happened here and now, she would most likely be murdered by the mourners!
Some time this year a man had reportedly died, the body was  put in a coffin and was being taken for burial when he started knocking on the roof of the coffin which he eventually split open and struggled out. The mourners at first scattered, terrified. Then some gained courrage, returned and attacked the hapless man, killing him and then took the dead body for burial!
One wonders why they wept at all  Sad
