Events that happened this weekend in Church History

Pope Saint Urban IIOriginator of the Crusades    Saturday, besides being the Feast of Saint Martha, it is the 901st anniversary of the Sovereign Pontiff who inspired the First Crusade - Pope Saint Urban II, the 159th successor of Peter. He was elected by the conclave of loyal cardinals in Velletri, Italy on March 12, 1088. This was because the antipope Clement III ruled Rome and there was great conflict at that time with the families of the eternal city fighting among themselves. Urban's eleven year pontificate was most noted for calling the very first of many Crusades over the next two centuries, a holy war that would meet with success in some venues, but largely caused much bloodshed in a lost cause ultimately for they were not able to drive the Saracens out. St. Urban also instituted the "Truce of God" which was an agreement by all that there would be a brief break in battle, giving each side time to bury those killed in the fighting.
