Saint John the Wonder Worker.
Bishop.

John was an 8th century Bishop of Polybotum in Phrygia. He was a defender of the Sacred Images. His position on this issue was at odds with those of the Iconoclast Emperor Leo, the Armanian. John reportedly performed so many miracles that the emperor was afraid of him and did not dare persecute him.
He died in 750
Was canonized by acclamation, i.e. Pre Congregation.

Saint Abraham of Kratia
Bishop and Hermit.

Abraham was born in 474 at Emesa in Syria. He became a monk in the city but was forced to flee to Constantinople because of raids by local pagans on his community which destroyed the monastery and caused the monks to disperse. In Constantinople, he entered another monastery. When he was 26, he became abbot of the monastery in Kratia. After a decade as abbot, Abraham resigned and went to Palestine where he became a hermit. He was forced to return by his Bishop and shortly after his return , he was made Bishop of Kratia. He served in this office for thirteen years before fleeing again to Palestine in the quest for solitude and a life of contemplation.
He spent the rest of his life in a monastery there.
Abraham died in 558 in Palestine.
He was canonized Pre-Congregation

Saint Mary Joseph Rosello
Foundress of the Daughters of Our Lady of Mercy.

She is also known by the following names.
Benedetta Rossello; Benedicta Rossello; Josepha Rossello; Maria Giuseppe Rossello; Maria Joseph Rollo and Sister Mary Joseph.
Saint Mary Joseph Rosello was born in 1811 at Albissola Marina, Liguria in Italy. She was baptized Benedetta.
She was the daughter of a poor potter and was one of nine children. When she was sixteen, Benedetta became a Franciscan tertiary. Her wish was to become a hermitess but was dissuaded from embarking on this way of life by her spiritual director, Capuchin Father Angelo of Savona. She took care of an invalid in Savona for nine years and when her patient, Mr. Monteleoni died, she and three companions, Pauline Barla, Angela and Domenica Pescio, founded a community in Savona in 1837, The
Daughters of Our Lady of Pity, devoted to the education of poor girls, the founding of hospitals and doing charitable works. Angela was named superior, while Benedetta, now named Josepha, became mistress of novices. In 1840, she was elected superior and held that position the rest of her life.
She died on 7 December 1888 at Savona, Italy and was canonized in 1949 by Pope Pius XII.
Saint Mary Joseph Rosello,

If only we had more or any in fact of the writings of these earliest Popes!

And of all the works of the Popes I wonder how much we have at all, that is simply not made available in English.

Martyrs of Samosata
In the year 297 in Samosata, somewhere in present day Turkey, seven Christians were martyred by Emperor Maximian for their refusal to perform a pagan rite to celebrate the Emperor’s victory over the Persians.
The martyrs were local magistrates Hipparchus and Philotheus and their converts: James, Paragnus, Abibus, Romanus, and Lollianus.
They were all crucified.
They were canonized by acclamation

Saint Eulalia of Merida
Martyr.

Eulalia was born in 290 in Spain. According to Dictionary of Saints by John J. Delaney, though a Saint by this name did live and suffer martyrdom in Merida Spain, what is known about her is legendary. According to the legend, she was a twelve year old Spanish girl who, despite her mother’s attempts to prevent her from doing so, denounced Judge Dacian for attempting to make Christians apostacize. She was tortured and put to death when she refused to sacrifice to the gods.
The year was 304.
Saint Augustine reportedly praised her martyrdom and Saint Prudentius also reportedly wrote a hymn in her honor.
