Saint Jeanne Jugan
Jeanne, who is also known as Marie de la Croix, (Marie of the Cross), was born on 25 October 1792 at Les Petites-Croix, Brittany, France. The village where she was born was a small, impoverished, fishing village. Her father, Joseph, was a fisherman. He died when Jeanne was 4 years old. It was left to her mother to raise the children as best she could on her meager resources.
At sixteen, Jeanne got a job as a maid at the estate of a Christian woman. Next, she worked at a hospital caring for the poor and the sick.
In 1842, with two other women, Virginia Tredaniel and Marie Jumpet, she
founded the Little Sisters of the Poor, with her as superior. In early December, 1843, she was re-elected superior of the Order. Two weeks later, however, she was suddenly deposed by Father Le Pailleur, the moderator of the community.
Jeanne received an award in 1845 from the French Academy for the work she was doing in helping the poor.
She retired to the motherhouse in 1852 and spent the rest of her life in obscurity.
She died on 29 August 1879 at Pern, France.
Canonized on 11 October 2009 by Pope Benedict XVI.

Saint Aidan.
Bishop of Lindisfarne

Aidan was born in Ireland.
He studied under Saint Senan at Inish Cathay, before becoming a monk on the island
of Iona off Scotland in 630. In 635, Aidan went to England, as the Bishop of Lindisfarne, at the request of King Oswald of Northumbria. In Ireland,
Aidan was well known for his sermons, his learning and his holiness. Miracles
were attributed to him. In Lindisfarne, he founded a monastery that became
known as the “ Iona of England”.
It became a center of learning and missionary activities for all of northern England. He conducted missionary work in Northumbria, where he became a close friend of the Northumbrian Kings, Oswald, and later, Oswiu.
Aidan died on 31 August 651 at the royal castle at Bamburg, England, soon after the death of his friend, King Oswiu.
He was canonized pre-congregation.

Saint Verena
Verena was born in the 3 century in the Thebaid region in Egypt. She was
reportedly, a relative of Victor, one of the soldiers of the Theban Legion. She travelled to Switzerland to search for him and after learning of his death, she settled down to live at a site called Solothurn, ministering to the poor of the area. She later became a recluse, spending her remaining days in a cave near Zurich.

Martyrs of September
This was a group of 191 (190 according to other sources) martyrs who were massacred by a mob on 2 September and 3 September 1792, during the French
Revolution. According to SQPN, they had been “..imprisoned in the Abbey of
St-Germain-des-Prés, Hôtel des Carmes in the rue de Rennes, Prison de la Force, and Seminaire de Saint-Firmin in Paris, France by the Legislative Assembly for refusing to take the oath to support the civil constitution of the clergy.
This act placed priests under the control of the state, and had been condemned by the Vatican”
According to Our Sunday VisitorEncyclopedia Of Saints, the most prominent martyrs of this group were:
1:John Mary du Lau,
the archbishop of Arles.
2: Francis de la Rochefoucald, bishop of Beauvais.
3: Louis de la Rochefoucald, bishop of Saintes.
4: Benedictine Augustine Chevreux, last superior general of
the Maurists.
5: Charles de la Calmette, the count of Valfons.
6: Julian Massey.
7: Louis de la
Touche and
8: Carmes.
The martyrs were all beatified on 17 October 1926 by Pope Pius XI.
