Saint Rigobert
Abbot of Orbais
Archbishop of Rheims

He is also known as Robert of Rheims.
Rigobert was a Benedictine monk. After serving for sometime as Abbot of Orbais in France, he was appointed Archbishop of Rheims. As a result of a dispute with Charles Martel, the very powerful Frankish mayor, Rigobert was banished to Gascony. Charles gave the see of Rheims to Milon. When Saint Rigobert's dispute with Charles Martel was settled, he returned to Rheims. He chose not to persue his rightful claim to the see and instead, became a hermit.
He was venerated for his holiness and patience and was credited with many miracles.
He died a natural death in 750
Saint Rigobert,

January 6

Today is of course the
Solemnity of the Epiphany of the Lord.
The unavailing of Our Lord  as the Saviour of the whole world, not just for the Jewish People.


" Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
    and gave him the name that is above every name,
 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
    in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
    to the glory of God the Father."


Philippians 2:9-11

Martyrs in Africa
Martyrs of Africa is the collective name given to the martyrs, men and women who died for the faith in northwestern region of Africa. The martyrs vary depending on the date and feast.
Although we know that the martyrdoms occured, we do not know the names of the martyrs, so we honour them as a group.
In 210, Christian men and women were burned at the stake in the persecution under Emperor Septimus Severus. This group of martyrs, we honor today, January 6.

What very early martyrs! All ye holy martyrs, pray for us! Cheesy

Ye holy kings, pray for us!

I remember reading about the good porter and his building of a shrine to St. Joseph, awhile back. Cheesy I had a little book about him. The stories about his humility impressed me. Cheesy

I have also been reading about him, just to remind me as I could not remember much.
It seems he had chronic abdominal pain and this was a cross that interfered with his holding down jobs.

Good morning Shin!
You are right. I thought of Channing when I read it and it crossed my mind to draw his attention to it; but it was just a thought.

Saint Charles of Sezze
He is also known as Giancarlo Marchioni and as John Charles Marchioni.
Charles was born on 19 October 1613 at Sezze, Italy and named John Charles Marchioni. His parents were poor but pious. As a youth, he worked as a shepherd. Later, he wanted to become a priest but was not able to manage this calling as he could hardly read or write. He became a Franciscan lay brother at Naziano. He served at various menial positions, such as cook, porter, and gardener at different monasteries near Rome. He became well known for his simplicity, charity and his holiness. Charles was also a stigmatist. His heart was reportedly pierced by a light from the Sacred Host, leaving a visible wound.
Charles' holiness attracted many despite the lowliness of his monastic duties. During the plaque of 1656, he reportedly worked among the stricken victims.
He died in Rome on 6 January 1670 at San Francesco. He was buried at the Church of Saint Francis in Rome.
He was canonized on 12 April 1959 by Pope John XXIII.
Saint Charles of Sezze,
