Saint Januarius, Bishop & Martyr & Companions, Martyrs

San Gennaro, for our Italian readers. He is the patron saint of blood banks.

The Catholic Encyclopedia has more on this saint.

This is one of the two days of the year on which the relic of his blood liquifies when brought in promimity to the severed head of this martyr.

Has it done so today?

Saint Januarius, please pray for us!

Wednesday In the Michaelmas Embertide

Today is a day of fervent prayer, fasting, abstinence, and almsgiving as the Church marks the seasonal shift from Summer to Autumn, and prepares for the Feast of Michaelmas. Remember, it's Ember!
