SAINT FABIAN, POPE, MARTYR

Pope Fabian reigned as Pope from 235 through 236.  It was said that a dove landed on his head during the Papal Conclave.  Pope Fabian fought against the many heresies against the Church and especially those originating in Africa.  He encouraged the use of catacombs in Rome for Christians to protect themselves.  He died in 250.

 

INTERCESSORY PRAYER:  Let us ask Saints Sebastian and Fabian to help us to be constant in our faith, especially when we our faced with great opposition.
