  3. ^ "St. Augustine relates that Felicitas, being with child, her execution was deferred, according to the laws, until after her delivery, and whilst she was in labor she mourned, and when exposed to the beasts, she rejoiced. With them suffered Revocatus, Saturninus, and Secundulus. This last died in prison ; all the others were delivered to the beasts."[12]
  4. ^ Vivia Perpetua was a young married woman of good social position. Felicity, also married, was a slave. The others were catechumens and Saturus perhaps their instructor. All were imprisoned together in Carthage in North Africa as a law of Septimus Severus forbade conversions to the faith. Secundulus died in prison: the others were thrown to the wild beasts in the amphitheatre on March 7. Their Acts were written by Saturus, one of the martyrs, and completed by an eyewitness.
  5. ^ A Northumbrian noble, he entered the monastery of Wearmouth with his relative St Benedict. He succeeded St Benedict as abbot. He was celebrated for his gentleness.
  6. ^ Born in Languedoc in France, he changed his name from Smaragdus on becoming a monk at Aniane with its first Abbot, St Benedict, whom he later succeeded as abbot.
  7. ^ The Monk Laurentios was churchwarden of a monastery in honour of the Most Holy Mother of God on the island of Salamis. He reposed on 6 March 1770, and his memory is observed on March 7.
  8. ^ Glorified by the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church.[19]
  9. ^ Having arrived on Valaam during the abbacy of Damascene and having become fully absorbed by the spirit of that monastic general, Elder Sisoes (Seraphim before the schema) became an elder, directing monks souls in the art of unseen warfare, so that long lines of monks would wait at his door for counsel. For fifty years he lived in Valaam and its various sketes as well as in the metochia in St Petersburg and Moscow. He ended his life as a staunch defender of the Church Calendar and hesychastic way of life so typical of the monks of Valaam. Elder Sisoes had as disciples among others, Monk Justinian, who left brief biographical data on his elder. He claimed that Elder Sisoes was a possessor of the unceasing Jesus Prayer which would automatically murmur in his heart, of ten accompanied by an abundance of rears He would sweetly whisper, Jesus, have mercy, and everything around him would be transformed as he lay in the infirmary with other schema monks who, dressed in their cowls and with their arms crossed, waited on the Lord's grace, for their souls to be pulled' out of them, so they could fly straight to heaven.[20]
