Saint Gamaliel
Gamaliel was one of the great teaches of the law.  As found in Acts 22:3, he was Saint Paul’s teacher in Jerusalem. Gamaliel counseled the Jewish Sanhedrin in Jerusalem to release Saint Peter and the Apostles who had been arrested for preaching. They were flogged then released.
According to an ancient tradition, Gamaliel later became a Christian. The finding of his body in Jerusamen is celebrated on this day, August 3 by early Christians.

Saint Ia
Martyr.

Ia was a Greek slave. She was reportedly so very success in converting Persian women to the faith that she was arrested during the persecution of Christians by King Shapur II of Persia; tortured for months in an attempt to force her to apostatize but to no avail. She was flogged and subsequently beheaded in 360.

The Martyrs of Cardena
Sometime in the 8th century, more than two hundred Benedictine monks, in the monastery of Cardena, Spain, under Abbot Stephen, were put to death by Arabs during their conquest of the peninsula.
They were beatified in 1603.

Blessed Agathangelus Noury
Martyr
.
Agathangelus, who is also known as Agathangelo, was born on 31 July 1598 near Vendome in France. He was baptized Francis. He entered the Capuchin monastery at Le Mans in 1619 and was ordained a priest in 1625 taking the name of Agathangelo. After preaching in France for a while, he was sent as a missionary to Aleppo, Syria where he became known as an Arabic scholar because he published Catholic works in Arabic.
In 1633, Agathangelus was sent to Cairo and was joined there by Father Cassian Lopez Neto. The two priests worked together to bring the Coptic Christians into communion with Rome. A synod of Coptics in 1637, to discuss reunion failed dismally reportedly because many Catholics in Cairo at the time were notorious for their dissolute lifestyles; from the French consul down through his staff, to the others in the consulate. Agathangelus attempted to excommunicate the worst of the offenders. He wrote to the prefect of propaganda in Rome for authotity to excommunicate. Before receiving a reply, however, he left with Father Cassian to establish a Capuchin mission in Ethiopia.
In 1638, through the influence of one Peter Heyling, a Lutheran doctor who hated Catholicism, they were arrested at Dibarua, near Suakim, and taken in chains before King Gondar( King Basilides, from other accounts). They were tried and found guilty of interfering with Ethiopian religious matters. They were hanged by the cords of their Franciscan habits.
Both were beatified in 1905 by Pope Pius X.
Canonization is pending.

It is hard to imagine that Christianity was there in all these areas before Islam was. Sad

I found this bit of information worth pondering over. It follows, does it not, that Christianity is where it is today; i.e. divided and weak; completely wiped out from some areas of the world where it was once dominant, as a consequence of our own lackuster approach to the Faith. It is like God is punishing us Christians the way He punished the Isaelites and allowed them to be scattered from the land He gave them. Sad

Saint Famianus
Hermit

He is also known as Famian and as Quardus. He was born in 1090 at Cologne, Germany He went on a pilgrimage to Rome, the Holy Lands, and Compostela in Spain. He remained at Compostela as a hermit and stayed for 25 years at San Placido on the River Minho. When a Cistercian abbey was built nearby, he joined the Order. In time, Famianus made a second pilgrimage to the Holy Land, and on to Umbria in Italy, where he died in 1150 at Gallese.

I talk to my Egyptian Coptic Orthodox neighbors and learn a few things. Egypt now has majority Muslims. My neighbor told me how the Muslims invaded years back and persecuted the Coptic Orthodox. If anyone spoke Coptic their tongues were cut off by the Muslim invaders. So now in the present time Coptic has been wiped out and only Arabic is spoken. Even my neighbor speaks Arabic.
We must pray for the return of these people to the Roman Catholic Church. I see their strong faith, orthodoxy and piety but they still need to return to Rome , to the Vicar of Christ on earth.  crucifix
