St. Stephen, pray for us

Dropping by Deacon Scott Dodge’s joint for a visit, I was reminded that this is not only the feast of the Holy Family, but the feast of St. Stephen, proto-martyr and patron of deacons.

To all deacons, and all who serve the gospel: happy feast day.

  1. “Interesting that he was martyred for his preaching.” That comment I read somewhere should give us deacons good food for thought.

  2. St. Stephen pray for us in these challenging times and let the words we preach to God’s people resound with your zeal!

    Peace!
