St Philomena also has been called Thaumaturga (wonder worker). Is it Latin? Huh?

According to Wiki, it is derived from Greek words.

Let us remember Saint Hesychius of Antioch today. He was a Roman soldier during the reign of Dioclatian. Suddenly moved to proclaim his faith, he declared himself a Christian and threw away his military belt.

And to think that, in the west, we Christians are fearful of even a little public chatisement/disapproval for professing our faith!

I really wish I knew Greek! But it's Greek to me!

Because of the different alphabet!  Grin

There's a social stigma against public expression of Christianity in this country!

Saint Barlaam.
Martyr.

Barlaam was born in Antioch early in the 4th century. He was reportedly an uneducated Christian peasant. During the persecution of Diocletian, Barlaam was arrested, imprisoned and tortured for being a Christian. He was commanded to offer sacrifice to pagan gods; he refused. When they could not force him to make the required sacrifice, the judge had him hold his hand over red hot coal. Hot incense was sprinkled over the hand with; the idea was that the intense heat would cause Barlaam to shake off the hot incense, thus giving the impression he was indeed sacrificing to the gods. They however underestimated the Saint’s resolve. He reportedly held his hand unflinchingly until it was consumed. In frustration, the judge had him murdered.
He was martyred at Caesarea, in Cappadocia( modern Turkey, but according to the book, Dictionary of Saints by John J. Delaney, he was martyred at Antioch,

Saint Felix of Valois
Hermit

Co-founder of the Trinitarians.
Felix, also known as Hugh of Valois, was born in 1127 in the province of Valois in France and named Hugh. He was the son of Count Raoul de Vermandois et de Valois and Alienor de Champagne. He was educated at the abbey of Clairvaux. As a young man, Hugh renounced all his wealth and took the name Felix. He lived as a hermit at Cerfroid, France. In 1198, he and his disciple, Saint John of Matha, received approval from the Holy See for the Order of the Most Holy Trinity ( The Trinitarians, Redemptionists ), to ransom captives from the Moors in Spain and Northern Africa. John worked in Spain and Barbary while Felix, by now in his seventies, founded Saint Mathburn Convent in Paris and administered the French province from Cerfroid.
Felix died on 4 November 1212 at the Cerfroi monastery, Picardy, France
He was canonized on 1 May 1262 by Pope Urban IV.

St. Barlaam's story certainly shows the fervor with which we should hold on to God, and how we should avoid even the least mistaken sign of respect for paganism.

St. Felix of Valois is no doubt familiar to the Five-Fold scapular wearers due to the Trinitarian Scapular. Cheesy

It tells us that the will has power over the body.

Saint Albert of Louvain.
Cardinal and Knight.

He is also known as Albert of Leuven, and as Alberto di Lovanio.
Albert was born in 1166 in Brabant, modern Belgium. He was the son of Duke Godfrey III of Brabant and brother of Henry I, Duke of Lorraine and Brabant. At the age of twelve, Albert was made a canon of Liege, Belgium, he however resigned from the priestly honor at the age of twenty one and became a knight of Count Baldwin V of Hainault, a bitter enemy of his own country, Brabant. Albert talked of going on Crusade, but never did; instead, he resumed his clerical life and received back his canonry.
He was named the bishop of Liege in 1191. His appointment did not please Count Baldwin who had one of his own relatives lined up for the bishopric. He appealed to Emperor Henry VI, who deposed Albert and appointed Lothaire, who was the provost of Bonn, Germany, to the see of Liege. Albert in his turn, appealed to Rome in person and Pope Celestine III declared his appointment valid. He was ordained priest and consecrated bishop in Rheims, France. Unfortunately, Lothaire refused to surrender the see, and worse, a group of Henry’s knights ambushed and murdered Albert on the road outside Rheims. He was stabbed to death on 21 November 1192
Lothaire was excommunicated and exiled for his role in the grisly affair.
Henry was forced to make public penance for the actions of his knight.
The body was taken to the cathedral of Rheims where it reposed until 1612 when archduke Albert of Austria had the remains transferred to the chapel of the new Carmelite convent he had founded in Brussels, Belgium.
In 1822, part of Albert’s remains were given to the
cathedral of Liege, Belgium.
Saint Albert,
Pray for us!
