Prayer for the Holy Souls in Purgatory.

God Our Father,
Your power brings us to birth.
Your Providence guides our lives. By
Your command we return to dust.

Lord, those who die, still live in Your presence.
Their lives change but do not end.
I pray in hope for my family, relatives and friends
and for those dead known to You alone.

In company with Christ, who died and now lives,
may they rejoice in Your Kingdom,
where all our tears are wiped away.
Unite us again in one family, to sing
Your praise forever and ever.
Eternal rest grant unto them Oh Lord,
And let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in peace.
Amen!

Saint Publius, Saint Victor, Saint Hermes and Saint Papias
Martyrs

These four saints were a group of martyrs in North Africa who were put to death at a time no longer known to us. The acts of their martyrdom have been lost.
At least their names have survived and the Church, in her faithfulness, honors them on this day.
Martyrs of North Africa,

Saint Winifred of Wales.
Virgin and Martyr.

Saint Winifred , who is also known by other versions of the same name , for instance,
Wenefrida, Gwenffrewi, Guinevere, and more, was born in Flintshire, Wales. According to legend, she was the daughter of a Welsh nobleman who was a member of the royal court and was an advisor to the King. She was reportedly very beautiful. She had strong Christian beliefs having Saint Beuno Gasulsych, her maternal uncle as her mentor. Winifred made a private vow of Chastity, dedicating herself to the Lord.
Due to her noble connections and her beauty, Winifred attracted many suitors, one of whom was a chieftain named Caradog of Hawarden. When she refused all his advances, legend has it that he was so incensed that he cut off her head on June 22, 650.
Again legend has it that from the spot where her head hit the ground, a well sprang up which became the Holy Well, one of the most popular pilgrim sites in Wales.
In another version of the legend, she was miraculously healed by her uncle, Saint Beuno and, with her head restored to her body, she became a nun, and later abbess at Cwytherin, in Clwyd, Wales.
The Holy Well, or Saint Winifred’s Well, was still honored and visited after the Reformation.
Her relics were enshrined at Shrewsbury, England.
Saint Winifred of Wales,
Pray for us!.

Saint Joannicus of Mount Olympus
Hermit
Prophet and a Miracle Worker.

Joannicus was born in 754 at Bithynia modern Turkey. In his youth, he was a swineherd.
He lived a dissolute life and was an ardent iconoclast. He reportedly became a soldier in the Byzantine army. When aged forty, a friend who had become a monk, converted him to the faith. He retired from the military and the world, becoming a hermit on Mount Olympus and later, a monk at Eraste. He became a vigorous defender of orthodoxy and fought iconoclasm. He defied Emperor Theophilus over this issue of iconoclast, declaring prophetically, that sacred images would be restored to the Church.
This was fulfilled by the Empress Theodora, wife of Emperor Theophylus. She did restore the icons.
Joannicus was famed for his miracles and the gift of prophecy.
He died on 4 November 846 at Antidium.
He was canonized by acclamation, i.e. pre-congragation.
Saint Joannicus,

Saint Elizabeth
First Century

Elizabeth, mentioned in the Bible, was a descendant of the Old Testament patriarch, Aaron. She was a cousin of the BVM, the wife of Zachariah and the mother of Saint John the Baptist. She and her husband lived in what the Bible describes as “a town in the hill country of Judea”, an area of Jerusalem.
In the Gospel of Saint Luke, 1: 5-80, Elizabeth was beyond childbearing age when an angel told her husband Zachariah that they would have a son and would name him John. When he doubted this, he was struck dumb.
When Elizabeth was six months with child, she was visited by the BVM. When the two holy women met we learn that when Elizabeth heard Mary's greetings her still unborn baby leapt in her womb for joy and that Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and greeted Mary thus: "Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb...."
Mary, in her turn, filled with the Holy Spirit, burst out with the song of praise we call the Magnificat or The Canticle of Mary.
Saint Elizabeth died in the First Century.
Saint Elizabeth,
Pray for us!
