Take time today to learn about Christianity's first martyr.
"Whoever would save his life will lose it; and whoever loses his life for my sake, he will save it" (Lk 9:24).
In today's first reading, St. Stephen is described as filled with grace and power. Pray that you may be a true disciple of the Lord.
Pope Francis has spoken about what it means to be a "daily martyr," and the sacrifices we might regularly make for our loved ones. Make a list of the ways you serve your family, spouse, children, parents, etc. and see if you might be able to add more things to that list in the coming days.
