Saint Martha - Her remains are in the Cathedral in Tarascon. She is the biblical figure described in the Gospels of Luke and John. Thank you Saint Martha for your many blessings. Her feast day is July 29.
This is why it can be hard to understand Christians sometimes. True, feet-sitting followers of Jesus Christ operate on a totally different framework, one wherein you have to believe it before you see it. For many of us, the things we’ve seen, prevent us from ever going back.
Francis of Assisi was a poor man who astounded and inspired the Church by taking the gospel literally—not in a narrow fundamentalist sense, but by actually following all that Jesus said and did, joyfully, without limit and without a mite of self-importance.

Born in Greece, Saint Theognostus became Metropolitan of Kiev and Moscow in the 14th century. When enemies denounced him to the Mongol ruler for not having paid tribute to obtain the position, as was often done by clergy, he answered "Christ our God bought His Church from the unbelievers with His precious Blood. For what do we pay tribute to unbelievers?" Miraculously, he was not killed for his honesty, and governed the Church for 25 more years. He is celebrated Mar 14.

Hail, Holy Queen Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve: to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus, O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary! Pray for us O holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. Amen.
The Madonna of the Magnificat, 1483-85 Sandro Botticelli. The Virgin Mary is being crowned by angels, and is writing the opening of the Magnificat. She is a very important part of religion and this painting shows that. I like this because of the great detail and meaning it brings along with it.

A strict faster, Monk Prokhor of Pechersk (11th cent Russia) ate pigweed instead of bread despite his brethren's ridicule. During a great famine, many tried to eat it too, but it was very bitter; however, Prokhor gathered and baked it, and it tasted like wheat. During a great salt shortage, Prokhor's prayers transformed ashes into pure salt. When it was confiscated by the ruler of that region, it became ashes and was thrown away. As people took it again, it became salt. (Feb 10)

Saint Herman of Alaska (Russia 18th cent) became a monk at 16. Virgin Mary appeared to him to heal his facial cancer. In 1793, he was sent missionary to America (Kodiak Island). Aleuts were so receptive that first year 7,000 were baptized and 1,500 married. Herman lived in a forest hut, fasting most days. He founded an orphanage and a school, cared for the sick, and built a chapel. When he died, people saw a white light rising from his hut. He is the first canonized American saint (Dec 12).
