Saint of the day
The Saint of the Day presents a daily calendar of Saints remembered by the Church and featured in the Vatican calendar. The pages feature the stories of the great witnesses of Christian life through the centuries, lighting our way on our journey of faith.
Most Holy Mary, Mother of God
The Council of Ephesus in 431 confirmed a truth very dear to the Christian people: Mary is the true Mother of God, insofar as she is mother of Jesus, true God and true man: two natures in one Divine person, without confusion, without change, without division.
St. Vincent Maria Strambi, Bishop, Passionist
A native of Civitavecchia (1745-1824), he became a Passionist priest, over the objection of his father. A great preacher, he became bishop of Macerata. He cared for seminarians’s formation and helped the poor. After refusing to swear loyalty to Napoleon, the Pope called him as his advisor in Rome.
