SAINT OF THE DAY

St. Martina of Rome

Saint Martina of Rome

St. Martina of Rome (d. 228) was born to a noble Roman family and orphaned at a young age. She was zealous in the practice her faith, remained a virgin, and, in preparation for the Christian persecutions sweeping the city, gave much of her inheritance to the poor. She was martyred for the faith, under the persecutions of Roman Emperor Alexander Severus. According to the accounts of her martyrdom, she was discovered praying in a church and was arrested by Roman soldiers. When she refused to pay homage to the pagan gods, she was cruelly tortured over several days, raked with iron hooks, and scourged. When a bright light enveloped her, some of her torturers converted to the faith amid her fervent prayers. Taken to the temple of Diana to offer sacrifice, and in her presence, the temple's demon left with a scream. They next tried to throw her to a lion, who had no interest, and to burn her alive, but she would not catch fire. In the end, she was beheaded. St. Martina's feast day is January 30.

Jesus calling the fishermen

After John had been arrested,
Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God:
“This is the time of fulfillment.
The kingdom of God is at hand.
Repent, and believe in the gospel.”

As he passed by the Sea of Galilee,
he saw Simon and his brother Andrew
casting their nets into the sea;
they were fishermen.
Jesus said to them,
“Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
Then they abandoned their nets and followed him.
He walked along a little farther
and saw James, the son of Zebedee, and his brother John.
They too were in a boat mending their nets.
Then he called them.
So they left their father Zebedee in the boat
along with the hired men and followed him.
