Saint Emiliana of Rome
Emiliana was a Mystic. Very likely raised piously as you can imagine from the following list of her family members. She was the daughter of Saint Silvia of Rome; aunt of Pope Saint Gregory the Great; niece of Pope Saint Felix III; sister of Saint Tarsilla ( Trasilla), also called Tharsilla.
Emiliana and Tarsilla lived a life of prayer and great austerity at the home of their brother, Pope Gregory’s father. According to SQPN, Tarsilla “spent so much time kneeling in prayer that her knees and elbows were locked arthritically in the position”
Emiliana died on January 5, 550, a few days after the death of her sister Tarsilla.
Saint Emiliana,

Last year I posted something on Christmas on this this day.
This year, I am posting the following:

Nativity Prayer of Saint Augustine

Let the just rejoice,
for their justifier is born.
Let the sick and infirm rejoice,
For their saviour is born.
Let the captives rejoice,
For their Redeemer is born.
Let slaves rejoice,
for their Master is born.
Let free men rejoice,
For their Liberator is born.
Let All Christians rejoice,
For Jesus Christ is born.


Saint Augustine of Hippo.

25 December is also the day we remember
Saint Peter Nolasco

Peter was born of a noble family in 1182 ( 1189 according to other sources) at Mas-des-Saintes-Puelles, in France. His father died when he was fifteen years old, leaving him a substantial fortune. He went to Barcelona and used his wealth to ransome Christian prisoners from the Arab Muslims who ruled most of Spain at the time. In response to a vision which was reportedly also experienced by Saint Raymond of Penafort and King James of Aragon, Peter founded the Order of Our Lady of Ransom or the Mercedarians, (Order of Our Lady of Mercy )
a religious organization dedicated to ransoming Christian slaves from their captives, the Moors. Saint Raymond of Penafort, Peter’s spiritual director is considered a cofounder of the Order. The Order was initially approved by Bishop Berengarius of Barcelona. He was supported by King James of Aragon in this venture, papal approval came from Pope Gregory IX in 1235.
In addition to the three traditional vows, the Mercedarians added a fourth vow, to give themselves if necessary in exchange for a slave.
In his effort to free Christian slaves, Peter traveled several times to parts of Spain dominated by the Moors. He also traveled to Algeria where he was imprisoned for some time.
Peter died on 25 December 1258 at Barcelona.
He was canonized on 30 September 1628 by Pope Urban VIII.
Saint Peter Nolasco,

Saint John Stone
One of the Forty Martyrs of England and Wales
Doctor of Divinity.

John was born in Canterbury, England.
He became an Augustinian Friar. He was also a Doctor of Divinity and very highly regarded for his learning. For a time he served as professor at Droitwic in Worcestershire, England but was back in Canterbury when Henry VIII began his divorce proceedings. He denounced Henry’s claims to ecclesiastical supremacy from the pulpit.
He was arrested in December 1538 and imprisoned at Westgate Prison. From Catholic Encyclopedia, we read:
Quote:
Quote
When in prison before his martyrdom "after an uninterrupted fast of three days, he heard a voice, but without seeing the presence of anyone, calling him by name and exhorting him to be of good courage and not to hesitate to suffer with constancy for the truth of the opinion which he had professed".
Thus, John reiterated his condemnation of the Supremacy Act while in prison.
He was hanged, drawn, and quartered sometime before December 1539. (Sources vary as to when he was actually martyred). The martyrdom took place in
Canterbury, England. .
He was canonized by Pope Paul VI in 1970 as one of the Forty Martyrs of England and Wales .
Saint John Stone,

I often think about that as I don't much care for the time into which I was born, but I suppose it was rather bleak back then as well. I've often wondered how wonderful it would be to sit around a campfire with the Apostles and listen to them telling stories about all the incredible things they witnessed, ah well maybe someday.

I dare say that posterity will also look back wishfully at this particular age  Smiley
