JOHN of CHINON (Tours), possibly a native of the British Isles, St. John was a sixth century anchorite in Chinon in the Diocese of Tours in the west of France. He was the spiritual father of Queen St. Radegund (13th August), and known for his wonderworking.

ZOILUS and COMPANIONS, St. Zoilus, a youth, and 19 others, martyred in Cordoba, during the Diocletianic Persecution, circa 301. His relics were translated to León in the late 11th century, and enshrined in a monastery there which was renamed San Zoilo de Carrión.

Prior to the Schism the Patriarchate of Rome was Orthodox, and fully in communion with the Orthodox Church. As Saint John of Shanghai and San Francisco +1966 said “The West was Orthodox for a thousand years, and her venerable Liturgy is far older than any of her heresies”.
