Ss. Alexander and Companions, and St. Juvenal
May 3, 2023
An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day 3 of May, repeating indefinitely
St. Alexander became pope in 109 and held the Holy See ten years. He died in 119 and is ranked among the martyrs in the canon of the Mass. Martyrologies join with him two companions, Eventius and Theodulus who suffered with him, or at least about the same time of his happy death. The bodies of Saints Alexander, Eventius and Theodulus were interred on the Via Nomentana but were translated into the church of St. Sabina, which now belongs to a great convent of Dominican friars. St. Juvenal, the first bishop of Narni in Umbria who died in peace about the year 367, is commemorated in the Roman Breviary on the same day.
