The Feast of Saint Stephen

Today the church celebrates The Feast of Saint Stephen, a deacon and the first martyr of the church. “We obviously don’t know the exact date of Saint Stephen’s martyrdom,” says Father Jerry in today’s opening prayer, “but the church is trying to show us that following Jesus has consequences, and some of them demand great sacrifice.”

Thank you for watching Father Jerry’s latest video above, and may your twelve days of Christmas be full of comfort and joy.
