As you might have guessed today is the feast day of St. Callixtus.
Me wonders where he got the tiara from
My missal reads the following about him:
“ St. Callixtus I, successor of St. Zephyrinus, instituted the Ember-Day fasts, and provided for the honourable interment of the martyrs. He himself suffered martyrdom under Alexander Severus. A.D. 223
I for one confess that I have not partaken in “ember-days” as of yet, but I do plan on starting to take these things a lot more seriously considering the crisis that abounds in Holy Mother Church today.
Rorate had a great article on Ember days and you can find it here.
