Saint of the Day: St. Januarius (4th century) was a bishop in Italy during Diocletian’s persecution. While visiting imprisoned deacons, he was arrested, and later martyred. His blood was preserved, and dried. Every year since 1389, on his feast day, and on the Saturday before the first Sunday in May, his blood liquifies.

“Remember that the Christian life is one of action; not of speech and daydreams. Let there be few words and many deeds, and let them be done well.” – St. Vincent Pallotti
