Saint Neot
Hermit.

According to Our Sunday Visitor's Encyclopedia of Saints, Neot was a monk at Glastonbury Abbey in England. He was ordained, but left the abbey to become a hermit in Cornwall, an area that later became known as Saint Neot. According to tradition, Neot was related to King Alfred the Great who used to visit him for advise. Somewhat unkindly, the Saint was called " the Pigmy Saint", awing to the fact that he was, reportedly, just 15 inches tall.
He died in 877. His relics are at Saint Neot's church, Cambridgeshire, England, and at the abbey of Bee, Normandy, France
He was canonized,

St Neot, pray for us!


Do not let any occasion of gaining merit pass without taking care to draw some spiritual profit from it; as, for example, from a sharp word which someone may say to you; from an act of obedience imposed against your will; from an opportunity which may occur to humble yourself, or to practice charity, sweetness, and patience. All of these occasions are gain for you, and you should seek to procure them; and at the close of that day, when the greatest number of them have come to you, you should go to rest most cheerful and pleased, as the merchant does on the day when he had had most chance for making money; for on that day business has prospered with him.

Saints Faith, Hope and Charity.
Martyrs.

According to legend, Faith, Hope and Charity were the daughters of Wisdom, known as Sophia in the Roman Martyrology. Sophia was a widow living in Rome.
The daughters suffered martyrdom during Hadrian’s persecutions of Christians.
Faith, twelve, was scourged, and boiling pitch was poured on her but she remained unharmed. She was subsequently beheaded.
Hope, ten and Charity , nine, were also heheaded after emerging unscathed from a furnace. Wisdom, their mother, died three days later while praying at their graves.
Faith, hope and Charity are also called: Fides, Spes and Caritas in Latin, and Pistis, Elpis and Agape in Greek.

Saint Plegmund
Archbishop of Canterbury

Plegemund was born in Mercia England, and was a hermit near Cheshire. According to Our Sunday Visitor Encyclopedia Of Saints, Plegemund was the tutor of King Alfred the Great, and at the request of Alfred, Pope Stephen V or IV, appointed him archebishop of Canterbury.
According to Dictionary of Saints by John J. Delaney, however, Plegemund became a member of King Arthur’s court and at Arthur’s request was named Archbishop of Canterbury in 890 and consecrated in Rome by Pope Formosus. In 908, Plegemund returned to Rome probably to secure approval of his archbishopric by Pope Sergius III since Formosus’ consecrations were condemned in 897 and 905.
He died at Canterbury in 923.
