MILLENNIUM MILESTONES that occurred Today in Church History

Historical Events in Church Annals for October 29th:

  • 1292 A.D.
  • Death of Saint Benvenuta of Cividale, virgin and religious who died at the age of thirty-eight. There is a legend that says shortly after her mother died, Benvenuta, just a young girl was praying before the Blessed Sacrament when Jesus appeared to her as a young boy to console her and assure she would always have a loving mother in His Blessed Mother as long as she prayed the Hail Mary. When she agreed and began praying the prayer at the moment she said "thy womb Jesus" He identified Himself as the Son of God and disappeared. She was loyal from that day forward.
