Feast Day of St. Sebastian
Sebastian was an early martyr of the Church. Franciscan Media tells us: “One day he took up a position near where the emperor was to pass. He accosted the emperor, denouncing him for his cruelty to Christians. This time the sentence of death was carried out. Sebastian was beaten to death with clubs. He was buried on the Appian Way, close to the catacombs that bear his name.”
May we ask the Holy Spirit for courage to speak.
St. Sebastian, pray for us to have an increase in courage to recognize opportunities and respond to defend our Church.
