St. Fabian Comments

Eusebius, born just a few years after Fabian's death, tells us how Fabian came to Rome after Pope Anteros died in 236. A layperson, and not a very important one, he may have come for the same reason many still come to Rome today during a papal election: concern for the future of the faith, curiosity about the new pope, a desire to grieve for the pope who had passed.

    St. Sebastian (an early church martyr) is in the churches liturgy as an optional memorial January 20th, but not mentioned in Catholic Online's list of saints for the day.
    Some brief info:
    (+ 288), St. Sebastian, a native of Milan, was an officer in Diocletian's imperial guard. He converted to Christianity, whereupon he suffered martyrdom by order of the emperor.

    St Alphonse Ratisbonne for some inexplicable reason does not figure in your Saints of the Day.
    The apparition of Our Lady in the Church of St Andrea delle Fratte in Roma, Italia, marked the conversion of this anti-Catholic Jew on 20 Jan 1842.
    His story is absolutely fascinating and the Apparition was a most moving and compelling event.
    The Our Lady used the Alter of St Michael, who is now relegated to another alter across the aisle facing the magnificent portrait of Our Lady. A 'must visit' for every visitor to Roma.
    Would Catholic Online kindly insert St Maria Alphonse Ratisbonne in their List of Saints of the Day.

    Thank you for the the informative story. I knew I was named after a Saint but now I know he was a great Pope and martyr and I am proud to bear his name.
