    Often during the Latin Mass there appear to be quiet Contemplative pauses.

    During one these periods I often love to google obscure saints whose Feast Day it is out or pure pious curiosity to discover whose these complete Heavenly strangers are.:) I would not recommend it to others but I find it helps me Celebrate with a little more devotion, though for others it might merely be a distraction. It works for me but.:):)

    Anyway last September 8th, the birthday of Our Mother I found buried away and totally overshadowed by the Great Feast that it was also Feast to a very romantic story of a young husband and wife, which would make a great film.

    I read this a couple of weeks ago but it has stuck in my mind, it being so touching.:)

    By the way St Adrian is Patron Saint of Protection from Plagues.

    (In Orthodoxy Celebrated 27th August rather than September 8th. Also these are Universal saints rather than simply Orthodox)

    Nicomedia is modern Izmit in Turkey, about 80 miles from Instanbul.
