Catholic Word of the Day: ACTS OF THE MARTYRS, 07-28-12
CatholicReference.net ^ | 07-28-12 | Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary

Featured Term (selected at random):

ACTS OF THE MARTYRS

Actual accounts of early Christian martyrdoms. The most reliable are those that follow the official shorthand reports of the trials and executions. Among the best known are the Acts of St. Ignatius, St. Polycarp, the Martyrs of Lyons, and the Passions of Sts. Perpetua and Felicitas, and St. Irenaeus. In the Western Church the Acts of the Martyrs were carefully collected and used in the liturgy from the earliest times, as witnessed by St. Augustine.

All items in this dictionary are from Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary, © Eternal Life. Used with permission.


TOPICS: Apologetics; Catholic; History; Theology
KEYWORDS: catholic; history; liturgy
Thus -- our liturgical calendar? Or at least the beginnings of it.

Does anyone keep track of the more recent official Martyrs of the Catholic Church?

To: Excellence; NYer

In the newly released Roman Missal, many of the new martyrs are inserted.

I try to keep up with the beatifications and canonizations that are in the news, too, as does NYer.
