I think that's because a lot of saints are no longer as "revered" as they used to be and i know quite a few have been removed from the calendar. still, there are so many that are matyrs that it's almost impossible to every detail about them all

That's how I felt about St. Maurice when I first tried to look him up. First of all, there are so many, that I had no idea which one was our school's patron saint, then, he is such an old one, it is hard to dig up info. It is not like the "newer" saints like Saint Catherine or St. Maximillian!

Thanks everyone for looking. I'm sure that there is something else out there and will let you know if I find anything.

It is just weird that this is a listed saint that I can't find out anything about.

Why does that saint sound so familiar to me, though? Hmmm...I wonder where the really old saints books went from our school library. I'll have to ask the parish priest. If he has them in his office now, I will have to look her up.

edited to add - okay, so after some research, I have come to realize that the "Cassia" mentioned in the link below (Catholic Online) is actually a typo. It should read CASSIUS. SABINUS and CASSIUS were martyred wit St. Maurice, the patron saint of the school where I work. That is maybe why Cassia seemed familiar to me, I was thinking of Cassius. I will do more research and post again if I find out anymore.

I looked up St. Cassia, and got a hit under St. Kassia, who is venerated in the Orthodox church, but her feast day is in September,

I looked through my Encylopedia of Saints and was unable to find any more information. in fact, there rerally was nothing listed under Saint cassia except "see Sabinus"

Recently I decided to do some research into my confirmation saint; whom I honestly picked out of a list in an old family Bible because I liked the name. I am hoping that someone on here can help direct me to a resource to learn a bit more about my chosen saint. So far I have this much information...

From the Bible: Cassia; feast day July 20; Martyred with St. Sabinus and others.

So far I have been unable to find anything directly related to this saint. Although I was able to find some information about a St. Sabinus with the correct feast day, that mentions he was martyred with Cassia. That is here...
www.catholic.org/saints/saint.php?sa

t_id=2408


I've also learned that there are at least 4 other St. Sabinus' in the Liturgical Calendar; the most popular with a feast day on Dec. 30th (not my guy though). Additionally, there is a famous St. Kassia in the Orthodox calendar, but who is also not my person.... maybe I should switch.

Sorry for the tangent. I am just hoping that someone might be able to help point me in the right direction in this research.
