  1. ^ The notation Old Style or (OS) is sometimes used to indicate a date in the Julian Calendar (which is used by churches on the "Old Calendar").
    The notation New Style or (NS), indicates a date in the Revised Julian calendar (which is used by churches on the "New Calendar").
  2. ^ A Greek slave in Rome, he was ordained deacon by Pope Zephyrinus, whom he succeeded in 217. He condemned Sabellianism and other heresies, but was forgiving and tolerant to those whom rigorists regarded as sinners. As a deacon he had cared for the cemetery on the Appian Way, which is known by his name. He was probably martyred in Todi in Italy.
  3. ^ "AT Rome, on the Aurelian road, the birthday of blessed Callistus, pope and martyr. By order of the emperor Alexander, after being a long time kept in prison without food, and daily scourged with rods, he was finally hurled from the window of the house in which he had been shut up, and cast into a well, and thus merited the triumph awarded to conquerors."[15]
  4. ^ Born in Asia Minor, he became Bishop of Rimini in Italy in 346. He suffered much at the hands of the Arians who dominated the Council of 357 and he was martyred by them.
  5. ^ Born in Rome, he became Bishop of Rheims in France from 360 to 390. His relics were translated to Bruges in Belgium in the ninth century and he has since been venerated as the patron-saint of Bruges.
  6. ^ A deacon in Vienne who became Bishop of Lyons in France in 350. In 381 he attended the Council of Aquileia and then went to Egypt and lived as a hermit.
  7. ^ See: (in French) Just de Lyon. Wikipédia. (French Wikipedia).
  8. ^ Born in Perthois in France, she was the youngest of seven sisters, all of whom are honoured as saints in various parts of Champagne. She is the patroness of Sainte-Ménéhould. See:
    • (in French) Ménehould. Wikipédia. (French Wikipedia).
  9. ^ "At Todi, St. Fortunatus, bishop, who, as is mentioned by blessed Gregory, was endowed with an extraordinary gift for casting out unclean spirits.".[15]
  10. ^ Abbot of Holyhead in Wales, he was connected with St Cuby. He appears to have reposed in Cornwall and Manaccan (Minster) near Falmouth is said to owe its name to him.
  11. ^ A cousin of St Lambert of Lyons and a nun at Fontenelle in France. Eventually she became Abbess of Oröer-des-Vierges near Beauvais.
  12. ^ Born in England, he went to Germany with St Boniface (c 732). He became Bishop of Würzburg and founded several monasteries, of which the most important was St Andrew's, later named after him.
  13. ^ Perhaps born in England, he went on pilgrimage to the Holy Land and Rome but stayed there to live as a hermit in Arpino in Italy. His relics are enshrined in Rocca d'Arce.
  14. ^ At Rocca d'Arce, in the kingdom of Naples, the festival of ST. BERNARD, Confessor. The tradition of the country, in which the remains of this Saint repose, is decidedly that he came from Great Britain, and that he was the companion of St. Ardwyne, St. Gerard, and St. Fulk, in their pilgrimage to the holy places of the East. On their return they spent several years of rigorous solitude and a most austere and holy life on Mount Gargano, and were on their way to Rome, when, one after the other, at different places on the route, they were called to their everlasting rest. Gerard was the first to die at Gallinaro; and a little while later, when the survivors had reached Arpino, Bernard also was taken from their company. He died the death of a Saint, and was buried by the Chapel of St. John, on the road to Rocca d'Arce. It seems to have been in the twelfth century that the fame of his sanctity became widely spread, that is, from the time of his translation to Rocca d'Arce, which was effected in consequence of a heavenly revelation. Subsequent translations have taken place at later times, the last being on 26th June, 1698, from the old Gothic church to a new chapel erected on purpose. The chief festival is held on the 14th October, which is probably the day of the translation from Arpino to Rocca d'Arce, and the secondary feast on the 26th June, in honour of the latter solemnity."[19]
