Ss. John and Paul, Martyrs
|Recurring Event (See all)
An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day 26 of June, repeating indefinitely
The ancient basilica of Saints John and Paul on Mount Caelius in Rome was in the fourth century already dedicated in honor of the two martyrs whom we celebrate today. Roman tradition depicts them as two brothers, who encouraged each other to remain faithful in their sufferings. Their Mass emphasizes this profound brotherhood in fidelity to Christ.
