Saint Leobinus of Chartres
Also known as Lubinus or Lubin of Chartres
Bishop of Chartres.

Saint Leobinus was born in a poor family of peasants near Poitiers in France in the 6th century. As a youth, he worked as a shepherd as well as a field worker. He, however had a hunger for education, but his parents being poor, could not afford to educate him. Leobinus travelled to the nearest monastery which was at Noailles. He was taken in by the monks and they came to an arrangement so that during the day, he worked for the monastery and at night, the monks taught him.
Eventually, Leobinus felt drawn to the hermitic life. He spent sometime as a hermit with Saint Avitus of Perche, before joining an abbey near Lyons. During his stay here, the monastery was attacked by raiders (renegade soldiers during a war between the Franks and Burgundians). He was tortured to force him to reveal the hiding place of the treasures of the monastery; he never did. He was left for dead but recovered.
He  rejoined Saint Avitus at Le Perche and after the later's death, he was ordained and made abbot of Brou and soon after he was appointed Bishop of Chartres. As Bishop, Leobinus instituted reforms and participated in councils at Orleans and Paris.
He died on 14 March 558 after a prolonged illness,
Saint Leobinus,

Saint Edith of Wilton
Edith was born in 961 at Kensing, Kent, England. Her father was King Edgar the Peaceable, the great grandson of Alfred the Great. Her mother was a Saxon girl named Wulfrith or Wilfrida. At the time of her birth, Edgar, her father, was a teen of 19 and had become king of Wessex the previous year.
One of his royal palaces was at Wilton. The palace had a large abbey within its vast grounds of about 10,000 acres of land. The abbey included a school for the daughters of the nobility and royals. It was here that Edgar met 16-year-old Wilfrida in 960. Whether or not there was some form of a marriage is not clear. Whatever the details behind Edith’s birth, once the baby was born, Wilfrida brought her to Wilton Abbey within hours and left her to be cared for there. She became a nun at the abbey and later, its abbess.
Edith was raised in the Wilton abbey, which she never left. She was educated at the royal court in Wilton. At the age of 15, she became a nun there as her mother before her. That same year, Edgar died. Edgar had wished to see her appointed as an abbess to one of the nunneries that he supported, but Edith preferred to remain a nun. To appease Edgar, she was given the honorary title of Abbess at Wilton.
When her father died, she was offered the throne, but she refused it. Again when her half brother, King Edward the Martyr was murdered, she was offered the throne a second time and still she refused.
Saint Edith built the Saint Denis Church at Wilton.
She died on 15 September 984 of natural causes.
Saint Edith,

Saint Columba of Cordoba
Martyr
Colomba was born to a pious family at Cordoba, Spain. She had a sister Elizabeth and a brother Martinus who was an abbot.  Her father died when she was still young.
Her sister and her husband founded a double monastery at Tabanos near Cordoba. Inspired by these family members, Columba became a nun at her sister's monastery in Tabanos, much against the wishes of her mother who wanted her to marry. When the Muslim persecutions of Christians under Muhammed started in 852, most of the nuns of Tabanos fled to Cordova. Columba, however, refused to run. She took up residence at the basilica of St. Cyprian, where she prepared herself penitentially for a martyr's death. When taken before the Muslim magistrate, she refused to deny the faith and was beheaded.

Saint Richardis
Empress.

She is also known by the following names:
Richarda; Richarde; Richgarda and Richkart.
She was born in 839 at Andlau, Alsace, France. She was the daughter of Kenneth I, the Count of Alsace, When she was twenty, she was married to Emperor Charles III or Charles the Fat, son of King Louis the German. She and Charles were crowned Emperor and Empress of the Holy Roman Empire by Pope John VIII in Rome in 881. After nineteen years of marriage, Charles accused Richardis of infidelity with chancellor Liutward, the Bishop of Vercelli. Both denied the charge. Richardis went a step further and underwent trial by fire, a ritual then used to "prove" one's innocence. She successfully endured this ordeal by fire before the imperial assembly to prove her innocence. After her vindication, Richardis left Charles, and became a nun at Hohenburg, Germany. Later she founded a Benedictine abbey at Andlau in 887, and lived there until her death in 895 at Andlau, Alsace. She died of natural causes.
Her canonization was Pre-Congregatio

Saint John Houghton
Protomartyr of the English Reformation.

John was born in 1487 at Essex, England. He graduated from Cambridge with degrees in both civil and canon law. He was ordained in 1501 and served as a parish priest for four years. Later John became a Carthusian monk and still later, prior of the Carthusian Charterhouse of London.
In 1534 John was the first person to oppose King Henry VIII‘s Act of Succession and Supremacy. He was arrested with other Carthusians for their opposition to the Acts, but was released temporarily. On 1 February 1535, Parliament required that the oath be signed by all. John refused to swear to the Oath of Supremacy. He became the first man to so refuse. He was arrested, dragged through the streets and thrown in jail in the Tower of London. John was tried together with his
co-defendants and was found guilty of treason.
He was hanged, drawn, and quartered on 4 May 1535 at Tyburn, London, England. His body was chopped to pieces and put on display around London as a deterrent to others.
John was beatified on 9 December 1886 by Pope Leo XIII and canonized on 25 October 1970 by Pope Paul VI.

Saint Maura of Troyes
Maura was born in 827 at Troyes, Champagne, France. She was born in a noble family. From her childhood, she was noted as pious and devoted to prayer. Through her prayers, her father who had previously lived a worldly life, was converted. She also prayed for her brother Eutropius and for the whole family. Eutropius later became bishop of Troyes, France.
After the death of her father, she continued to live at home and was a dutiful and obedient daughter to her mother Sedulia. Maura devoted her life to prayer, fasting and ministering to the poor. She made altar vestments, tabernacle candles, and anything else that could help at Mass.
According to Catholic on Line, Maura had the " gift of tears" This is how they put it:
Quote:
"So wonderful was her gift of tears, that she seemed never to fall upon her knees to pray but they streamed from her eyes in torrents"
The saint is reported to have worked miracles but requested these miracles not to be made public for she did not want to draw attention to herself.
Maura died in 850 at Troyes, Champagne, France. She was twenty three years old.
Canonized Pre-Congregation

What a beautiful gift! As the desert monks might say, the gift of tears watering the garden of the heart.

God help us to gain it!  Cry
