Feast of Saint Stephen, first martyr

  • On this Feast of St. Stephen the Martyr, consider Pope Francis' thoughts about the "daily martyrdom" of those who sacrifice for the good of their family.

  • Prayer Suggestion

    First Antiphon for Morning Prayer on the Feast of Saint Stephen:
    "Stephen, filled with the Holy Spirit, looked to heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of the Father."  As Saint Stephen died for Christ, so may we live for him whose cross brings us life eternal!
