  2. ^ Hieromartyr Pancratius of Taormina is also commemorated on July 9.
  3. ^ "At Solum, in Cyprus, the holy martyrs Ammonius and Alexander."[8]
  4. ^ "In the same city, in the reign of Decius, the birthday of St. Apollonia, virgin, who had all her teeth plucked out by the persecutors; then having constructed and lighted a pyre, they threatened to burn her alive, unless she repeated certain impious words after them. Deliberating awhile with herself, she suddenly slipped from their grasp, and feeling an inspiration of the Holy Ghost, rushed voluntarily into the fire which they had prepared. The very authors of her death were struck with terror at the sight of a woman who was more willing to die than they to condemn her."[8]
  5. ^ "At Antioch, under the emperor Valerian, St. Nicephorus, martyr, who was beheaded and thus received the crown of martyrdom."[8]
  6. ^ "Saint Peter was Bishop of Damascus during the reign of Constantine Copronymus (c. 776) and a contemporary of Saint John of Damascus. He was arrested on the orders of the Caliph Walid for castigating the heretical doctrines of the Muslims and the Manichaeans. His tongue was cut out and he was exiled to South Arabia (Arabia Felix), where he continued to teach the true Faith and to serve the holy Mysteries until he entered into the reward of his labours in heaven.' (Synaxarion)[17]
  7. ^ Note, there is another "Hieromatyr Peter" who was martyred by the Saracens in Damascus, who was also a teacher of the Faith, whose feast day is on October 4 - "Martyr Peter of Capetolis"[18][19] However it looks like he is a separate individual.
  8. ^ "At Rome, the passion of the holy martyrs Alexander, and thirty-eight others crowned with him."[8]
  9. ^ "In Africa, in a village called Lemelis, the holy martyrs Primus and Donatus, deacons, who were killed by the Donatists for defending an altar in the church."[8]
  10. ^ He was entrusted with an embassy (535-536) to the Emperor Justinian. He is the patron saint of Bari where his relics are now enshrined.
  11. ^ Probably born in Penally near Tenby in Wales. He was a disciple of St Dyfrig and a friend of Sts David and Samson. He founded Llandaff monastery (Landeio Fawr) in Dyfed where he was buried.
  12. ^ "In the monastery of St. Vandrille, St. Ansbert, bishop of Rouen."[8]
  13. ^ Born in Ireland, he went to Germany and settled as a hermit in a forest near Augsburg. There he founded a monastery, now called Altomünster after him.
  14. ^ St. Tikhon's relics were believed lost but they were discovered on 19 February (6 February) 1992 (or, according to another source, 22 February (9 February). They were concealed in the Donskoy Monastery and were almost entirely incorrupt.
