St. Ignatius of Loyola

St. Ignatius of Loyola (1491 - 1556) was once a Spanish knight. During a battle, he was hurt by a cannonball and had to return home. Feeling bored, he read books about Jesus Christ and His saints. St. Ignatius was then inspired to serve Jesus. Eventually, he founded the Society of Jesus, or ‘Jesuits’ who preach the Good News all over the world. He is also known for his ‘Spiritual Exercises’, a method to make wise and Godly decisions. He is the patron saint of soldiers. His feast day is on 31 July.

St. Martha

Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if you would have been here, my brother wouldn’t have died. Even now I know that, whatever you ask of God, God will give you.” Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.” Martha said to him, “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.” Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will still live, even if he dies. Whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?” She said to him, “Yes, Lord. I have come to believe that you are the Christ, God’s Son, he who comes into the world.” - John 11:21-27

St. Alphonsa Muttathupadathu

St. Alphonsa Muttathupadathu (1910 – 1946) was the first woman from India to be canonized as a saint. She suffered much during her childhood. She lost her mother early in life and was put under stern care of her aunt. She contracted a skin disease that lasted a year. She fell into a pit of burning chaff that partially disabled her for life. St. Alphonsa became a nun with the Franciscan Clarist Congregation, taking the name of Alphonsa of the Immaculate Conception. Her final years were marked with illness and suffering. Yet she united them with the sufferings of Jesus for the sake of sinners. St. Alphonsa's feast day is on 28 July.

St. Joachim and St. Anne, Parents of Mary

St. Joachim and St. Anne are the parents of the Blessed Virgin Mary. According to traditions, they were childless for many years until an angel appeared and told them they would have a child. St. Anne then promised to dedicate this child to God. The parents of Mary played important roles in bringing her up, preparing and nurturing her to become Jesus' mother one day. In this way, they have a great part in the history of salvation! St. Joachim and St. Anne's feast day is on 26 July.
