11th - SS. Bartholomew and Barnabas, Apostles. Bartholomew is thought by many to the Nathanael, the “Israelite without guile” of St. John’s Gospel. He suffered death in Greater Armenia. His relics are enshrined in his church in Rome. Barnabas was one of the SS. Seventy disciples. He labored with St. Paul of Antioch, Seleucia. Etc., and is said to have been stoned to death by the Jews on the Isle of Cyprus.

13th - St. Aquilina, Martyr, suffered death A.D. 117 under the Emperor Trajan. St. Trephillus, Bishop of Levkusia in Cyprus, suffered at the hands of the Arians especially because of his loyalty to St. Athanasius. He died about A.D. 370.


14th - St. Elisha, Prophet, was of the Tribe of Rubin and son of Saphath B.C. 816. On him fell the mantle of Elias, and he continued the work of that great Prophet. In the age of St. Jerome his grave in Samaria was shown as containing also the body of St. Abdias, the Prophet. He died in the 8th century B.C. Our holy father, Methodius, Patriarch of Constantinople, native of Sicily, was induced by the Empress Theodora to accept the See of Constantinople as successor to the patriarch Nicephorus. He was celebrated for his sanctity in the Episcopate of his successor St. Ignatius. He died A.D. 846.
