St. Bartholomew, 1st. century, one of the 12.
All that is known of him with certainty is that he is mentioned in the synoptic gospels and Acts as one of the twelve apostles. His name, a patronymic, means "son of Tolomai" and scholars believe he is the same as Nathanael mentioned in John, who says he is from Cana and that Jesus called him an "Israelite...incapable of deceit." The Roman Martyrology says he preached in India and Greater Armenia, where he was flayed and ... read more

Could it have snowed one hot summer night in August, in Rome, Italy? The pope, his entourage, and several citizens of Rome are said to have witnessed an amazing and miraculous snowfall in the early morning of August 5, 352 AD.

St. Martha -- the Lord’s worker and servant, the sister of Saints Mary Magdalen and Lazarus (all three of whom "Jesus loved" as we see in John 11:5) -- is only mentioned in three chapters of the Bible, but her character comes through clearly.

OUR LADY of MOUNT CARMEL
Amid the many persecutions raised against the Order of Mount Carmel, newly arrived in Europe, Saint Simon Stock, General of the Order, turned with filial confidence to the Blessed Mother of God. As he knelt in prayer on July 16, 1251, in the White Friars’ convent at Cambridge, She appeared before him and presented him with the well-known brown scapular, a loose sleeveless garment destined for the Order of Carmel, reaching from the shoulders to the knees. It was given as an assurance, for ... read more
Feasts of St. Peter & Paul 10 y
This feast is for St. Peter, and St. Paul .
After the Resurrection, Jesus appeared to Peter and gave him the mission to feed the lambs and the sheep of Christ’s flock. In the early days of the Church, as we can read in the Acts of the Apostles, Peter took the lead in deciding what needed to be done. He arranged for someone to take the place of Judas among the apostles; he preached at Pentecost and worked miracles in the name of Jesus. When faced with the Council of t ... read more
