      St. Baya and St. Maura, Virgins
      ------------------------------------------------------
      Died 10th century. The Scottish Saint Baya instructed Saint Maura in
      the eremitical life. Followers later gathered around Maura, who
      organised them into a community of which she was abbess. Some authors
      identify Saint Baya with Saint Begha or Bee (f.d. October 31). They
      might also be identical to Saints Maura and Britta (f.d. January 15)
      (Benedictines, Delaney).


      St. Hercus, Bishop of Slane, Ireland,
      Consecrated by Saint Padraig
      ---------------------------------------------------

      Troparion of St Erc Tone 1
      Even in the darkness of heathendom/ thou didst recognise the God-given
      authority of Ireland's Enlightener, O Hierarch Erc,/ and wast baptized
      at his hands./ Wherefore we beseech thee, pray to Christ our God/ that
      being blessed with the virtue of humility/ we may be found worthy of
      eternal salvation.


      St. Cumgar of Devonshire, Confessor
      --------------------------------------------------
