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!

Saint Christopher.
Martyr.

Christopher, also known as Cristobal, Kester, Kitts and Offero, was born in Canaan. Not much is known about him. His fame derives from the legend of him being a “Christ-bearer”. According to this legend, Christopher was an ugly giant who made his living carrying people across a river. One day a small child asked for a ride and Christopher put him on his shoulder and off he went wading into the water. With each step that he took, the child he carried grew heavier and Christopher struggled, fearing for his life. The child then revealed to him that he was Christ (Christopher means Christ bearer) and the heaviness was caused by the weight of the world he was carrying on his shoulders. Because of this legend, Saint Christopher is the patron saint of motor travelers. He is also patron of America, so I have read. Smiley
Saint Christopher is one of the Fourteen Holy Helpers who appeared to Saint Joan of Arc.
He was, reportedly, martyred in 251 in Lycia, Asia Minor, now Turkey, in the persecutions of Decius.

Well, if one wrote a poem about them, there'd be no problem with the rhyme. Haha!

So too they did both die for the crime of being Catholic.   crucifix

Saint Aurelius
Martyr.

According to his biography by Saint Eulogius of Toledo, Aurelius' father was a Moslem and his mother a Spanish woman. Both parents died while he was still a child. He was then secretly raised a Christian by his aunt. This was during the Moorish occupation of Spain and their persecution of Christians. When he was grown, Aurelius married a woman called Sabigotho. She too came from a family background similar to his; she was half Moor. He converted her to Christianity and she took the name of Natalia.
Aurelia and Natalie befriended a Christian monk, George of Jerusalem. The three of them were arrested by the Moors and beheaded for the faith on 27 July 852
Their Memorials falls on this day.
Saint Aurelius,
