Saint Appian of Comacchio
Appian was born in Liguria, in Italy. He entered the Benedictine monastery in Pavia where he became a Benedictine monk. He became a hermit, living as a recluse on the shores of the Adriatic Sea. His mere presence there reportedly served to convert many in the area.
He died in 800 at Comacchio in Italy.

Saint Rose of Viterbo
Virgin and Preacher.

Rose was born of poor parents in 1234 at Viterbo, Italy. She had a vision of Our Lady when she was eight years old. She displayed many spiritual gifts. Within a short time, she began preaching in the streets in support of the Pope against the Ghibellines. Remember that at this time in history, there was a struggle for power between the Papacy and the Holy Roman Empire. In Italy, there were two factions; one was the Guelphs, who supported the Pope and the other, the Ghibellines, who supported the Holy Roman Emperor.
Rose preached, calling on the Guelphs to expel the enemies of the Holy See from the city. She constantly denounced Emperor Frederick II. The Ghibellines plotted to kill her. To save her life, she was exiled. She went to Soriano. In 1250, Rose prophesized the imminent and completely unexpected death of Emperor Frederick II, the enemy of the Pope. This came to pass a few days later.
Rose wanted to enter the Poor Clare convent of Saint Mary of the Roses at Viterbo. She was refused admission because she had no dowry.
According to Dictionary of Saints by John J. Delaney, Rose was occupying a house and a chapel near the convent. On the demand of the convent, this was closed down! She returned to her parents’ home in Viterbo and died there on 6 March 1252 at the age of seventeen. After Rose’s death, Pope Alexander IV, as a way of thanking her for her support, ordered that she be buried in the convent.
Rose was canonized on 1457 by Pope Callistus III.
She is the patron saint of exiles; people rejected by religious orders; tertiaries and Viterbo, Italy.
