Feast of St. Stephen

After the Feast of the Nativity of our Lord, Christmas, we celebrate the  martyrdom of St. Stephen. St. Stephen offered his life for the sake of Jesus the master who himself gave to humanity by becoming man. St. Stephen believed that being faithful to the master gives meaning to our human existence. He died because of his faith in Jesus made man to bring salvation and redemption to fallen humanity. By dying he confessed that Jesus is the Lord of the Universe. St. Stephen was a young and vital man and one of the first seven deacons appointed to help the Apostle’s in their ministry.
Today is the feast day of our Vicar General, Br. Stefan. He celebrated the Eucharist and in his message he called all of us to be faithful to the call that God has given to each one of us to be his witnesses. St. Stephen remained faithful to the Lord till his las breath.
Happy Feast to all.
