Happy Feast Day of St. Stephen (St. Stephen's Day)
I am posting this to pay homage to the patron saint of SSPX’s altar server’s guild (The Arch-confraternity of St. Stephen).

Gospel for Today
Matthew 10: 17 - 22
“17Beware of men; for they will deliver you up to councils, and flog you in their synagogues,18and you will be dragged before governors and kings for my sake, to bear testimony before them and the Gentiles.19When they deliver you up, do not be anxious how you are to speak or what you are to say; for what you are to say will be given to you in that hour;20for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.21Brother will deliver up brother to death, and the father his child, and children will rise against parents and have them put to death;22and you will be hated by all for my name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved.”
-The Gospel for today really spoke out to me especially the verses I bolded. It was a great reminder to not be afraid & to trust in the Lord. Today is also the feast day of St. Stephen, the First Martyr, who boldly spoke of Jesus in his time even against his enemies & was stoned to death & even in his dying, he was praying for his enemies & looking up to Heaven & saw Jesus standing at the right hand of God & said “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.”
St. Stephen, pray for us!
