  3. ^ "At Iconium, in Lycaonia, the holy bishop Amphilochius, who was the companion of St. Basil and St. Gregory Nazianzen in the desert, and their colleague in the episcopate. After many combats for the Catholic faith, he rested in peace, with the reputation of a holy and learned prelate."[7]
  4. ^ Born in Sicily, after a long time spent in Constantinople, he became Bishop of Girgenti, his native town. His commentary on Ecclesiastes still exists.
  5. ^ One of the Seventy Apostles, he was the third Pope of Rome. Consecrated by the Apostle Peter, he is mentioned in Philippians 4,3 and wrote a letter to the Church of Corinth which still exists. He is venerated as a martyr and he is remembered in Rome by the church of San Clemente, which may have been built on the site of his home.
  6. ^ "THE birthday of pope St. Clement, who held the sovereign Pontificate the third after the blessed apostle Peter. In the persecution of Trajan, he was banished to Chersonesus, where, being precipitated into the sea with an anchor tied to his neck, he was crowned with martyrdom. His body was taken to Rome during the pontificate of Nicholas I, and placed with due honors in the church which had been previously built under his invocation."[7]

In 580 he left Ireland with a group of monks and worked first in England, then in Brittany and finally in France where he founded a very strict monastery at Luxeuil. Here he was abbot for twenty-five years. His outspoken protest against the disorders of the Frankish court led to his exile. He ended his days in the north of Italy at Bobbio where he had also founded a monastery.
  10. ^ "In the village of Hasbein, St. Tron, priest and confessor."[7] A monk with St Remaclus, he was ordained by St Clodulf of Metz and eventually founded a monastery (c 660), which was called St Trond after him. It is situated between Louvain and Tongres in Belgium.
