Saint Pionius
Martyr.

Pionius was born at Smyrna inTurkey.
He became a priest and was renowned for his learning and the many conversions he made. He was arrested during a liturgical celebration in the persecutions of Christians under Emperor Trajanus Decius.
He was tortured and then burned to death on on 12 March 250, when he forcibly resisted attempts to make him sacrifice to the pagan gods. Also tortured and martyred with him were a group of fifteen companions, among them, Sabinus, Ascelepiades.

Lawrence of Spoleto
Bishop.
Also called Lawrence the Illuminator.

Lawrence was a Syrian, born and bred in Syria. In 514, he was forced to leave his homeland because of the persecution of orthodox Catholics by the Arians. He went to Rome where he was ordained a priest by Saint Hormisdas. He preached with great success in Umbria; he fought Arianism and he also founded a monastery in Spoleto. Against his will, Lawrence was named Bishop of Spoleto. The people of the city however rejected him because he was a foreigner. They soon changed their mind, however, when the gates of the city reportedly opened miraculously for his entrance.
Saint Lawrence was called the "Illuminator" because he had the gift to cure both physical and spiritual blindness.
After twenty years as bishop, he resigned, founded a monastery at Forfa near Rome where he died in 576.
He is the patron saint of the blind and against blindness

Dear Saint Lawrence of Spoleto,
You who was called the "Illuminator" because God blessed you with the gift to cure physical and spiritual blindness; pray for us who are visually challanged, that the Almighty may open our eyes, spiritual and physical , and that being thus cured, we may use them to worship and glorify Him, now and forever.
Amen!
