Saint Caesarius of Nanzianzen
Caesarius was the son of Saint Gregory of Nazianzen the Elder and Saint Nonna. Brother of Saint Gorgonia and Saint Gregory of Nazianzen. He studied medicine and philosophy at Alexandria, Egypt and Constantinople,Turkey. He became a famous physician and was named Physician to the Emperor Julian the Apostate. The Emperor tried repeatedly to get him to renounce his Christian Faith. At the time, Caesarius was just a catechumen, a Christian in training. He resigned his position rather than deny Christ. Later, he was physician to Emperor Jovian and treasurer for Emperor Valens. In 368, Caesarius was baptized after he narrowly escaped death in an earthquake in Nicaeam modern Turkey.
He died in 369, leaving all his fortunes to the poor.
Saint Caesarius,

Saint Anne Line
Martyr

She is also known as Anne Heigham and Anne Lyne.
Anne was born in 1565 at Dunmow, Essex, England . Her given name was Anne Heigham. She was the daughter of William Heigham, an ardent Calvinist. When Anne and her brother converted to Catholicism, they were disowned and disinherited by their father who was a wealthy man. Anne married Roger Line, a Catholic. He was arrested for his religion but was permitted to go into exile in Flanders where he died in 1594.
Anne stayed in England where she spent the rest of her life aiding fugitive priests.
She hid Catholic priests in her home and later in a house in London that had been set up to provide shelter for them by Jesuit Father John Gerard.
She was arrested there and hanged on 27 February 1601 at Tyburn, London, England.
She was canonized on 25 October 1970 by Pope Paul VI as one of the Forty Martyrs of England and Wales.

Saint Hedwig
Queen of Poland

Hedwig was born in 1371, the youngest daughter of King Louis I of Hungary, who was the nephew and successor to King Casimir III of Poland. Louis succeeded King Casimir and became Louis the Great of Poland. When he died in 1382, Hedwig succeeded him to the throne. At thirteen, she was married to the pagan Duke, Jagiello of Lithuania. According to Our Sunday Visitor’s Encyclopedia of Saints, by Matthew Bunson, Margaret Bunson, and Stephen Bunson, she married Jagiello only after he became a Christian. According to other sources, however his becoming a Christian was part of the marriage pact. Jagiello converted, destroyed pagan temples and forced baptism on his people. Hedwig became known for her charity and concern for the poor as well as her asceticism.
She died on 17 July 1399 during child birth.
She was canonized on 8 June 1997 by Pope John Paul II.

Saint Non
Aka Nonnita or Nonna,

Non was reportedly the mother of Saint David of Wales. She was said to be of noble birth in Dyfed Wales, the daughter of a chieftain, and was reportedly very beautiful. She was seduced by or possibly married a local chieftain named Sant. Saint David was born from that union. She later became a nun at the cloister called Ty Gwyn in Wales. Still later she went to Cornwall, and Brittany.
She died in Brittany. Her relics were enshrined in Cornwall until the Reformation when they were destroyed.
