Saint Venantius, Martyr

Red Double Today’s Martyr carries us back to the persecutions under the Roman Emperors. It was at Camerino, in Italy, that he bore his testimony to the true Faith; and the devotion wherewith he is honored by the people of those parts (which are under the temporal Sovereignty of the Roman Pontiff) has occasioned his […]

Saint Paschal Baylon, Confessor

White Double The Seraph of Assisi was sure to depute some of his children to pay their court to his Risen Master. The one he sends today is the humblest and most unknown of men; another will follow, three days hence, powerful in word and work, and holding a palm in his hands, as a […]

Fourth Sunday After Easter

White Semidouble Our Jesus has organized his Church, and confided to his Apostles the sacred deposit of the truths which are to form the object of our faith.

Saint John Baptist de la Salle, Confessor

White Double John Baptist de la Salle, the teacher of the humble, takes his place today beside Leo the Great, Athanasius, and Gregory of Nazianzum. He has no fear.
