Historical Events in Church Annals for November 3:

  • 592 A.D.
  • Death of Saint Silvia, mother of Pope Gregory the Great. After the death of her husband, she devoted her life to piety and prayer. She is considered one of the patron saints of expectant mothers.

  • 1148 A.D.
  • Death of Saint Malachy at the age of 54. He was the Irish Archbishop of Armagh and Down who was a mystic and is credited with his famous "Prophecies of the Popes" which foretold every Supreme Pontiff until the end of time. His accuracy to this point on all the Popes has been amazing, giving more credence to its authenticity. Some historians say he died on November 2, others November 3. Since it was around midnight we adhere to the latter.

  • 1639 A.D.
  • Death of Saint Martin de Porres, Dominican Missionary in Peru. For more about this devoted saint, see DAILY LITURGY

  • 1985 A.D.
  • Pope John Paul II beatifies the Carmelite Blessed Titus Brandsma.
