Commemoration of Pope Saint Evaristus, Martyr


       There is a commemoration today of the holy martyr Pope Saint Evaristus, who succeeded St. Clement and St. Anacletus as the Fifth Successor of St. Peter. He governed the Church during nine years. He divided the various ecclesiastical regions of Rome among the titular presbyters and ordered that seven deacons should surround the Pope when he preached. He was put to death for the Faith in the year 112.

      We want to thank the Friends of Our Lady of Fatima for expediting these resources of the Propers. Sources: Saint Andrew Daily Missal and the Marian Missal , 1945
