Saint of the Day

Chair of Saint Peter

Feb 22 Saint of the Day
February 22. Every cathedral has a “cathedra,” a bishop’s chair that is used only by the bishop when he presides in the cathedral. It’s a symbol of his authority as chief teacher and liturgist of the diocese. So, today we celebrate the authority of the chief bishop, Saint Peter and his successors, the popes.

Saint Polycarp

Feb 23 Saint of the Day
February 23. Without knowing a whole lot about Saint Polycarp, he has entered into the life of the Church because he was a martyr, a witness to the faith with his life. That alone links all Christians together. That level of testimony to the faith is notable.

Blessed Luke Belludi

Feb 24 Saint of the Day
February 24. Was Blessed Luke Belludi just at the right place at the right time, or was there something more at work in his happening to meet Saint Anthony and become his protégé? We would all agree that this is how the Lord works─through convenient happenstances.

Blessed Sebastian of Aparicio

Feb 25 Saint of the Day
February 25. Some holy people have a rather full life spread over a couple of vocations. Blessed Sebastian of Aparicio is such a person having been married twice before becoming a Franciscan.

Saint Maria Bertilla Boscardin

Feb 26 Saint of the Day
February 26. Courage, perseverance, and hope seem to characterize Saint Maria Bertilla Boscardin. In spite of all odds, she kept going and, in the process, helped many people find healing and peace.

Saint Gabriel of Our Lady of Sorrows

Feb 27 Saint of the Day
February 27. Disappointments, setbacks, loss, and suffering seem to define the life of Saint Gabriel of Our Lady of Sorrows. But undeterred by whatever happened, Saint Gabriel kept his focus and lived life well─so well that he was an example to both young and old.
