*The Saints from Scripture on the chart above are listed in the 2004 Roman Martyrology, with a few exceptions:

1) Jason and Daniel are not in the current Roman Martyrology, but have been included in previous editions, so I decided to add them to the list anyways. 

2) Veronica is also not in the Roman Martyrology, however, she appears in so many Catholic saint books, and in a way could represent the devout and distressed women of Jerusalem while Jesus carried his cross, that I put her on the list as well. 

3) The Holy Myrrhbearers – A special group of saints honored among Byzantine Catholics.

**Blesseds or Saints?
In the Roman Martyrology, a few are listed as blesseds rather than saints:

Onesimus
Joanna
Joseph Barsabbas

In ancient times, the words blessed, holy, and saint were sometimes used interchangeably.  You might see Onesimus, Joanna, and Joseph Barsabbas labeled as either saints or blesseds in various resources.
