Saint of the Day

Blessed Bartholomew of Vicenza

Oct 27 Saint of the Day
Blessed Bartholomew of Vicenza, a Dominican, challenged the heresies of his day. Known for his ability to preach, he overcame his adversaries and helped his diocese become more loyal to Rome in a time when anti-papal feeling ran high.

Saints Simon and Jude

Oct 28 Saint of the Day
Legend has it that Saints Simon and Jude traveled to Persia together where they were both martyred. This may explain why they share the same feast day. Saint Simon is usually referred to as "the Zealot,” and Saint Jude, also known as Thaddeus, is often considered the brother of Saint James the Lesser.

Saint Narcissus of Jerusalem

Oct 29 Saint of the Day
Some speculate that Saint Narcissus lived well beyond 100; some say he lived to 160. We don't know much about him, but a number of miracles are attributed to him. Narcissus served as bishop of Jerusalem in the late second century.

Saint Alphonsus Rodriguez

Oct 30 Saint of the Day
Saint Alphonsus Rodriguez lost his mother, wife, and daughter within a period of three years. He retired to his sister’s home, and after the death of his son, he entered the Jesuit Order, where he served as college porter. Saint Peter Claver was a seminarian during Saint Alphonsus’ time at the college.

Saint Wolfgang of Regensburg

Oct 31 Saint of the Day
Saint Wolfgang served many years as a teacher before becoming a Benedictine monk. He was named the bishop of Regensburg by the emperor and served reluctantly but well until his death in 994.

Solemnity of All Saints

Nov 1 Saint of the Day
While many saints have a specific feast day on which we celebrate their lives and work, the vast majority of the saints of heaven do not. Today we celebrate all of those men, women, and children who have gone before us and on whose shoulders we stand in our faith.

Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed

Nov 2 Saint of the Day
Following the ancient tradition within the Church of offering prayers for the faithful departed, today we offer our prayers for all of our deceased relatives and friends, trusting in the power of prayer and the infinite mercy of God.

Saint Martin de Porres

Nov 3 Saint of the Day
Due to racial and social prejudices, Saint Martin de Porres might have grown to be a bitter man, but he did not. Instead, he turned to the needs of others and generously cared for the poor and downcast. He was known for his goodness to, and love of others, regardless of their race.

Saint Charles Borromeo

Nov 4 Saint of the Day
Saint Charles Borromeo lived during the time of the Protestant Reformation, and helped with the reform of the whole Church during the final years of the Council of Trent. He also reformed the Catholic life of his diocese. Charles Borromeo was a member of the Medici family, but unlike many of his relatives, he devoted his life to the Church.

Saint Peter Chrysologus

Nov 5 Saint of the Day
Today we celebrate a Doctor of the Church, Saint Peter Chrysologus, which means "of the golden words." As bishop of Ravenna, Peter Chrysologus taught and led his diocese, showing them his commitment to the faith and to the Church’s authority. His writings have come down to us as masterful treatments on what we believe.
