Feast of St. Lawrence

Today, the Church celebrates the Feast of St. Lawrence, Deacon and Martyr. The image to the left uses traditional imagery to depict St. Lawrence: he is wearing a dalmatic and maniple and holding the Book of the Gospels, indicating his service to the Church as a deacon; he also bears the martyr's palm branch; finally, he is kneeling before a fire, indicating the method by which he died.

More information on today's saint can be found here.

Sancte Laurentii, ora pro nobis. Saint Lawrence, pray for us!
