St. Cyril of Jerusalem
(315?-386)

   
The crises that the Church faces today may seem minor when compared to the Arian heresy, which denied the divinity of Christ and threatened to overcome Christinity in the fourth century. Cyril was to be caught up in the controversy, accused (later) of Arianism by St. Jerome, and ultimately vindicated both by the men of his own time and by being declared a Doctor of the Church in 1822. Raised in Jerusalem, well-educated, especially in the Scriptures, he was ordained a priest by the bishop of Jerusalem and given the task of catechizing during Lent those preparing for Baptism and during the Easter season the newly baptized. His Catecheses remain valuable as examples of the ritual and theology of the Church in the mid-fourth century.

There are conflicting reports about the circumstances of his becoming bishop of Jerusalem. It is certain that he was validly consecrated by bishops of the province. Since one of them was an Arian, Acacius, it may have been expected that his “cooperation” would follow. Conflict soon rose between Cyril and Acacius, bishop of the rival nearby see of Caesarea. Cyril was summoned to a council, accused of insubordination and of selling Church property to relieve the poor. Probably, however, a theological difference was also involved. He was condemned, driven from Jerusalem, and later vindicated, not without some association and help of Semi-Arians. Half his episcopate was spent in exile (his first experience was repeated twice). He finally returned to find Jerusalem torn with heresy, schism and strife, and wracked with crime. Even St. Gregory of Nyssa, sent to help, left in despair.

They both went to the (second ecumenical) Council of Constantinople, where the amended form of the Nicene Creed was promulgated. Cyril accepted the word consubstantial (that is, of Christ and the Father). Some said it was an act of repentance, but the bishops of the Council praised him as a champion of orthodoxy against the Arians. Though not friendly with the greatest defender of orthodoxy against the Arians, Cyril may be counted among those whom Athanasius called “brothers, who mean what we mean, and differ only about the word [consubstantial].”

Father,
you have appointed your Son Jesus Christ eternal High Priest.
Guide those he has chosen to be ministers of word and sacrament

in fulfilling the ministry they have received.

Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

TB Pipol,
I would like to share to you The Incorruptible Saints. I'm facinated by this holy relics of mankinds holly men and women. Cguro an influence from my mothers bringing me to Inday Potenciana in Anda when I was a child.

One of my favorite is St. Charbel from Lebanon and below is his holy story:

Saint Charbel , or Sharbel, (Arabic: مار شربل‎, May 8, 1828 – December 24, 1898), born as Youssef Antoun Makhlouf in Bekaa Kafra in northern Lebanon, was a Maronite Catholic monk and priest, now venerated as a saint.

Contents [hide]
1 Life
2 Death
3 Devotion
4 Beatification and canonization of Saint Sharbel
5 Miracles
6 References
7 See also
8 External links
 


[edit] Life
He was raised by an uncle because his father, a mule driver, died when Youssef was only three years old. At the age of 23, he joined the Monastery of St. Maron at Annaya, Lebanon, and took the name 'Charbel ' in honor of a second-century martyr. He was taught by Father Nimatullah (who later became Saint Hardini) in the Seminary of Kfifan between 1853 and 1856. He professed his final vows in 1853 and was ordained six years later. Following the example of the fifth-century St. Maron, Charbel lived as a hermit from 1875 until his death. His reputation for holiness prompted people to seek him to receive a blessing and to be remembered in his prayers. He followed a strict fast and was very devoted to the Blessed Sacrament. When his superiors occasionally asked him to administer the sacraments to nearby villages, Charbel did so gladly.


[edit] Death
On December 16, 1898, Charbel was struck with an illness while celebrating the Holy Mass. He died on the day of Christmas Eve in 1898, and was buried in the St. Maron Monastery cemetery in Annaya. A few months later, dazzling lights were seen around the grave. From there, his corpse, which had been secreting sweat and blood, was transferred to a special coffin. Hordes of pilgrims started swarming to the place to obtain his intercession.

In 1925, his beatification and canonization were proposed for declaration by Pope Pius XI. In 1950, the grave was opened in the presence of an official committee which included doctors, who verified the soundness of the body. After the grave had been opened and inspected, it was reputed that the variety of healing incidents multiplied. Again, a multitude of pilgrims of different religions started flocking to the Annaya Monastery seeking the saint's intercession. Several post-mortem miracles are attributed him, including periods in 1927 and 1950 when a bloody "sweat" flowed from his corpse, soaking his vestments. His tomb has become a place of pilgrimage for Lebanese and non-Lebanese, Christian and non-Christian alike.


[edit] Devotion
Devoted to the Blessed Virgin Mary he spent the last 23 years of his life living as a hermit. Despite temptations to wealth and comfort, Charbel taught the value of poverty,self sacrifice, and prayer by the way he lived.


[edit] Beatification and canonization of Saint Sharbel
 
Statue with prayer requests at the Mexico City Metropolitan CathedralIn 1954, Pope Pius XII signed a decree accepting a proposal for the beatification of Charbel Makhlouf, the hermit. On December 5, 1965, Pope Paul VI officiated at the ceremony of the beatification of Father Sharbel during the closing of the Second Vatican Council. In 1976, Pope Paul VI signed a decree of canonization of Blessed Charbel. That canonization took place in the Vatican on October 9, 1977.

Among the many miracles related to Saint Charbel the Church chose two of them to declare the beatification, and a third for his canonization. These miracles are:

the healing of Sister Mary Abel Kamari of the Two Sacred Hearts
the healing of Iskandar Naim Obeid from Baabdat
the healing of Mariam Awad from Hammana.

[edit] Miracles
 
Handwritten prayer requests to Saint CharbelA great number of miracles were attributed to Saint Charbel since his death. The most famous one is that of Nohad El Shami, a 55-year old woman at the time of the miracle who was healed from a partial paralysis. She tells that on the night of January 22, 1993, she saw in her dream two Maronite monks standing next to her bed. One of them put his hands on her neck and made her a surgery that relieved her from her pain while the other held a pillow behind her back.

When she woke up, Nohad discovered two wounds in her neck, one on each side. She was completely healed and retrieved her ability to walk. She believed that it was Saint Charbel who made her the surgery but did not recognize the other monk. Next night, she again saw Saint Sharbel in her dream. He said to her: "I made you the surgery to let people see and return to faith. I ask you to visit the hermitage on the 22nd of every month, and attend Mass regularly for the rest of your life”. The second monk is widely believed to be Saint Maron. Since then, and according to Saint Charbel's will, people gather on the 22nd of each month to pray and celebrate the Mass in the hermitage of Saint Charbel in Annaya.[1]

Wala ko kaayo masinati niani nga Santoha, apan karon nalisang ko sa iyang pagtubag sa akong mga gihangyo, ang akong anak nakapasar sa iyang exam 1.3 unya nadawat siya dayon sa iyang gipangandoy.
Ako nag novena kang St Joseph kay ang akong mga ugangan nagluya na, sila ka portestante  man, mang hinaut ako nga sila abayan ni St Joseph.
We should try to expose his saintness because his tomb is not yet found and it has been said that his body is really intact and a lot of prayer should be said that it must be found soon.
pag amping  Sano, God bless you and your family.

St. Joseph is a provider like a father who always makes sure that there is enough food at home.  Sa amua, ang image ni St. Joseph naa sa ibabaw sa refrigerator kay according to my aunt who is a nun, mo intercede kuno ni si St. Joseph sa pagsiguro nga naay pagkaon ang pamilya. kalooy sa ginoo, wala gyud intawun mahutdi ug pagkaon among ref.

Novenas are really powerful.  Our family normally prays to the lady of Assumption and the Immaculate Concepcion during examinations and with the intervention of the Holy Mother,  every member of the family who takes the exam is always successful.

Happy St. Joseph's Day March 19
 Oh Holy Joseph, with faith you trusted God's message and acted on it.  With a husband's love you cherished Mary, our Mother.  With a father's care you watched over Jesus, our Savior.  With honest labor you provided for your Holy Family.  Pray for us now that we may nourish each other in faith, support each other with our labor and renew our Love for Jesus Christ and his Mother, Mary Immaculate.  "Oh Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee."

St. Salvator of Horta
(1520-1567)

   
A reputation for holiness does have some drawbacks. Public recognition can be a nuisance at times—as the confreres of Salvator found out.

Salvator was born during Spain’s Golden Age. Art, politics and wealth were flourishing. So was religion. Ignatius of Loyola founded the Society of Jesus in 1540.

Salvator’s parents were poor. At the age of 21 he entered the Franciscans as a brother and was soon known for his asceticism, humility and simplicity.

As cook, porter and later the official beggar for the friars in Tortosa, he became well known for his charity. He healed the sick with the Sign of the Cross. When crowds of sick people began coming to the friary to see Salvator, the friars transferred him to Horta. Again the sick flocked to ask his intercession; one person estimated that two thousand people a week came to see Salvator. He told them to examine their consciences, to go to confession and to receive Holy Communion worthily. He refused to pray for those who would not receive those sacraments.

The public attention given to Salvator was relentless. The crowds would sometimes tear off pieces of his habit as relics. Two years before his death, Salvator was moved again, this time to Cagliari on the island of Sardinia. He died at Cagliari saying, "Into your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit." He was canonized in 1938.

Comment:

    Medical science is now seeing more clearly the relation of some diseases to one’s emotional and spiritual life. In Healing Life’s Hurts, Matthew and Dennis Linn report that sometimes people experience relief from illness only when they have decided to forgive others. Salvator prayed that people might be healed, and many were. Surely not all diseases can be treated this way; medical help should not be abandoned. But notice that Salvator urged his petitioners to reestablish their priorities in life before they asked for healing.

Quote:

    "Then Jesus summoned his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to cure every disease and every sickness" (Matthew 10:1).

Saints Abdon and Sennen

Saints Abdon and Sennen
Martyrs
Born 3rd century, Persia (modern-day Iraq and Iran)
Died c. 250, Rome
Venerated in Roman Catholic Church
Canonized Pre-Congregation
Feast 30 July
Attributes Fur tunics; sword; Phyrygian caps; two crowns
Patronage burying the dead, coopers, Pescia; Sahagún, León, Spain
Saints Abdon and Sennen, variously written in early calendars and martyrologies Abdo, Abdus, and Sennes, Sennis, Zennen, are recognized by the Roman Catholic Church as Christian Martyrs, with a feast day on 30 July.[1] In some places they have been honoured on 20 March, and the first Sunday of May.[2]

Nothing is known historically about these saints except their names, that they were martyrs, and that they were buried on 30 July of some year in the Cemetery of Pontianus on the Via Portuensis.[1] Because of this lack of knowledge about them, they are no longer listed in the Roman Catholic Calendar of Saints to be commemorated liturgically worldwide,[3] but they may still be celebrated everywhere on their feast day unless in some locality an obligatory celebration is assigned to that day.[4] The rank of their celebration was given as "Simple" in the Tridentine Calendar and remained such until the classification was changed to that of "Commemoration" in the General Roman Calendar of 1962.

Their Acts, written for the most part prior to the ninth century, describe them as Persians martyred under Decius, in about the year 250, and contain several fictitious statements about the cause and occasion of their coming to Rome and the nature of their torments. They relate that their bodies were buried by a subdeacon, Quirinus, and later transferred in the reign of Constantine to the Cemetery of Pontianus on the road to Porto, near the gates of Rome. A fresco found on the sarcophagus supposed to contain their remains represents them receiving crowns from Christ. According to Martigny, this fresco dates from the seventh century. Several cities, notably Florence and Soissons, claim possession of their bodies, but the Bollandists say that they rest in Rome. The Abbey Benedictine Sainte Marie in Arles, France also claims a tomb.
"The difference between a smart person and a wise person is that a smart person knows what to say and a wise person knows whether or not to say it."

St Charles Borromeo

He died at Milan on the night of November 3-4, and was canonized in 1610. He was one of the towering figures of the Catholic Reformation, a patron of learning and the arts, and though he achieved a position of great power, he used it with humility, personal sanctity, and unselfishness to reform the Church, of the evils and abuses so prevalent among the clergy and the nobles of the times. His feast day is November 4th.
