Saint Marcel

Today is the Feast Day of St. Marcellus I, Pope and Martyr.

During a time of great slackening and falling away from the Faith, Marcel, the Catholic Bishop (of Rome in the year 308), was persecuted and exiled by the lukewarm under the influence of apostates.

To commemorate this Feast Day of St. Marcel a lay initiative was launched just a few days ago to make today a Day of Holy Hours offered on behalf of priests of the Society of Saint Pius X that they remain true to the mission entrusted to them by their founder, Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre (who was named after the holy saint), and that they are showered with graces to enable them to make the right decisions and take the right steps in these troubling times that have caused great dissention even within that priestly society.

Please try to make a Holy Hour today for this intention. Heaven will surely bless you for it.
