Saint Kentigern
Bishop of Strathclyde.

Saint Kentigern is also known as, Kentigern Garthwys, Kentigern Mungo, Kentigern of Glasgow or simply as Mungo. He was born in 518 at Culross, Fife in Scotland. His mother was said to be a British princess named Thenaw ( or Thaney, or even Theneva, according to Dictionary of Saints by John J. Delaney). When the princess was found to be with child of an unknown man, Thaney was reportedly hurled from a cliff. She landed at the foot of the cliff and was discovered still alive despite the great fall. She was set adrift in a boat on the Firth of Forth (From Wiki, the Firth of Forth is the estuary of Scotland's River Forth). She reached Culross where she was given shelter by Saint Serf. She delivered her baby and Serf named him Mungo which means "dear one" or "darling".
Mungo was raised by Saint Serf. He became a hermit in Glasgow. He was renowned for his holiness. In 540 he was consecrated bishop of Strathclyde. Soon after he was consecrated bishop, he fled to Menevia in Wales following an anti Christian uprising by local pagans. He met Saint David of Wales here and stayed with him. He founded a monastery at Llanelwy, Saint Asaph monastery. In 553, Kentigern returned to Scotland. He settled at Hoddam but later he returned to Glasgow where he spent his last days.
Saint Kentigern is considered the first bishop of Scotland. With his mother Thaney, he is joint patron of Glasgow.

Saint Macrina the Elder
Macrina was the grandmother of Saint Basil the Great, Saint Gregory of Nyssa, Saint Peter of Sebaste, and Saint Macrina the Younger. She was trained in the faith by Saint Gregory Thaumaturgus and she in her turn, influenced her grandchildren, Saint Basil the Great, Saint Gregory of Nyssa, with her religious fervor. She and her husband lived in Neocaesarea in Pontus, modern turkey. They suffered great hardship when she and her husband were forced to flee from their home and go into hiding during the persecution of Christians by Emperor Diocletian.
She died a natural death in 340 and was canonized by acclamation.

Saint John Calabytes
According to Legend, John was born of a wealthy family in Constantinople. He reportedly ran away from home as a child and became a monk. After six years, he returned home as a beggar and was not recognized by anyone. He lived on his parents’ charity in a shack ( calybites) nearby. He devoted all his time to prayer and penance. On his deathbed, he revealed his identity to his mother.
He died in 450.

The mother must have been completely heartbroken and yet, from a spiritual point of view, one could only celebrate such a life as the saint led.
