January 20: Feast Day of Pope Fabian and St. Sebastian

Pope Fabian

In the Roman Catholic church, January 20 is the day to celebrate Pope Fabian, who was martyred in 250 A.D., and Saint Sebastian, who was martyred about 40 years later.

St. Sebastian, patron of saint of archers - you can see why.

Here’s your trivia for the day: St. Sebastian is the patron saint of athletes, archers, and . . . protection from the bubonic plague!

Verse for the day:

Psalm 118:24

This is the day the LORD has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.
