Saint Januarius
September 19
Little is know about Saint Januarius, but according to various Christian sources, he was born in Benevento, became a priest at age 15 and Bishop of Naples at age 20. During the year and a half persecution of Christians by Emperor Diocletian, Januarius hid his fellow Christians.  Unfortunately he along with some of  his companions were caught and martyred in Naples.
