  • 604 A.D.
  • Election of Pope Sabinian as the 65th successor of Peter. After a vacancy of six months this holy man from Blaera, Italy was chosen to lead the Church.

He decreed that sanctuary lamps be always kept lighted in the churches and chapels where the Blessed Sacrament was present in the Tabernacle.

  • 606 A.D.
  • Death of Saint Eulogius, Patriarch of Alexandria who worked closely with Pope Saint Gregory the Great in fighting the various heresies of the age, especially the Eutychian heresy.

  • 630 A.D.
  • Death of Saint Amatus, Bishop and Confessor. This Benedictine monk was born in Grenoble, France and, encouraged by Saint Eustace, founded monasteries and became the first abbot of one of the monasteries where he remained until his death on this day.

  • 1549 A.D.
  • Pope Paul III publishes the suspension of the eighth session of the Council of Trent due to interference by the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V and an outbreak of typhus. No other reform decrees would be issued until this landmark Council would be reconvened in 1551 by Paul's successor Pope Julius III and last through 25 sessions when it would be finally closed by Julius' successor Pope Paul IV in December 1563.
