SaintCast #111, St. Stephen's Day, klling the wren, Stephen's tomb, Way of St. Vincent, audio feedback +1.312.235.2278
Have you killed the wren today? How about bleeding your horse? These are traditions around the world celebrated in honor of the Feast of St. Stephen, the Church's first martyr, celebrated on the day after Christmas. You've heard of the Way of St. James, how about the Way of St. Vincent? Our only source about the life of St. Stephen is from St. Luke in the Acts of the Apostles. However, we learn of the whereabouts of his tomb from an apocryphal work of the 6th century.
