The holy, glorious, all-laudable Apostle Gaius (also Gaios) is numbered among the Seventy Apostles. He was Bishop of Ephesus (Romans 16:23). The Third Epistle of John is addressed to the "well-beloved Gaius".

O Holy Apostles, intercede with the merciful God that He grant unto our souls forgiveness of offenses.

With Hymns let us praise the chorus of the Seventy disciples of Christ,
 ye faithful; and in godliness, let us keep a feast,
 for we learned through them to worship the Trinity,
Who is indivisibly One;
for they are the lamps of our most godly Faith.

O Holy Apostle Gaius, well-beloved disciple of Christ, pray for us. Amen

Our father among the saints Ignatius the God-bearer of Antioch (probably died AD 107) was the third bishop of Antioch, after the Apostle Peter and Euodios, whom Ignatius succeeded around AD 68. Ignatius, who also called himself Theophorus ("God-bearer"), was most likely a disciple of both Apostles Peter and John.

Quote "As a pilot calls on winds and a storm-tossed mariner looks homeward, so the times call on you to win your way to God. As God's athlete, be sober; the stake is immortality and eternal life."

Troparion (Tone 4)

By sharing in the ways of the Apostles,
you became a successor to their throne.
Through the practice of virtue, you found the way to divine contemplation,
O inspired one of God;
by teaching the word of truth without error, you defended the Faith,
even to the shedding of your blood.
Hieromartyr Ignatius, entreat Christ God to save our souls.
Kontakion (Tone 3)

The stirring celebration of your victorious fight
Is an announcement of the One who is to be born of the Virgin.
In your eagerness to possess Him forever,
You hastened to be devoured by the wild beasts.
Therefore, O glorious Ignatius, you were called the bearer of God!

Feast Day October 17th

Godbearing Saint Ignatius, pray for us!

S. Justina, ora pro nobis.

St. Justina, Martyr, her feast is on the 26th of September, celebrating her entry into Heaven.

'AT Nicomedia, the birthday of the holy martyrs Cyprian, and Justina, virgin. Under the emperor Diocletian and the governor Eutholmius. Justina suffered much for the faith of Christ and converted Cyprian, who, while a magician, endeavored to bring her under the influence of his magical practices. She afterwards suffered martyrdom with him. Their bodies being exposed to the beasts, were taken away in the night by some Christian sailors, and carried to Rome. They were subsequently taken into the Constantinian basilica, and deposited near the baptistery.'

Saint Kilian, feast day died 8 July, was an Irish missionary bishop and the Apostle of Franconia

Kilian told the Duke that he was in violation of sacred scripture by being married to his brother's widow, Geilana. When Geilana, whom Kilian had failed to convert to Christianity, heard of Kilian's words against her marriage, she was so angry that, in the absence of the duke, she had her soldiers sent to the main square of Würzburg, where Kilian and his colleagues were preaching, and had him beheaded, along with two of his companions, Colmán and Totnan.

Saint Kilian, imitator of Saint John the Baptist, you rebuked the adultery of the Duke and received the Marytr's reward, pray for us
Saint Kilian, Apostle of Franconia, pray for us
Saint Kilian, pray for us

O Glorious Saint Mary Magdalen, model of penitence, obtain for me the grace of perseverance in the practice of self denial according to the Spirit;
pray to God for me that I may appear before Jesus, Our Lord and Master, at the moment of my death with my lamp filled with the oil of faith and hope
and burning with the pure flame of charity and thus merit to be received with thee into His Eternal kingdom. Amen
(from a saint card I have)
Saint Mary Magdalen pray for us.
