ONLY THE FIRST CHRISTIAN MARTYR…

St Stephen, Martyr, pray for us.

And so, after the Feast of the Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ, we have the Feast of Stephen – or not as it turns out…

St Stephen appears to have been sent back to the bench this year. Poor St Stephen, after all, what did he do? Why should we remember him?

Oh yes, he was the first Christian martyr

So doubt anyone will be singing Good King Wenceslas this year then.

  1. Doesn’t the feast get transferred to the 29th as the next available day, since St John’s and the Holy Innocents are in the way?
