ALANUS (ALAN, ALAIN, or ÉLAN de LAVAUR), according to tradition he was a seventh century abbot and founder of Lavaur in Gascony. There is some question to the actual identity of this saint, and some sources posit that he is the same saint as St. Amandus of Maastricht (6th February).

BERNOLD, a hieromonk of Ottobeuren in Bavaria, and an illustrious wonderworker. St. Bernold reposed circa A.D. 1050.

IMMA (IMMINA, IMINA), the daughter of Duke Hedan II of Thuringia, she became a monastic and later was abbess of a convent in Karlburg, Franconia. St. Imma reposed circa A.D. 752.

JUCUNDA, a maiden in Reggio in Emilia-Romagna, and a spiritual daughter of St. Prosper (25th June). St Jucunda reposed in A.D. 466.

MOSES, a Roman priest, possibly of Jewish ancestry, who was of such renown as a champion of the faith, that St. Cyprian of Carthage (16th September) wrote him a letter of encouragement, and he was commended by Pope St. Cornelius (16th September) for his energy in converting non-believers and skill in refuting the arguments of Novatians. St. Moses was arrested several times for converting pagans, and following his final arrest (A.D. 251) he was beheaded.
