Most saints have specially designated feast days. On those days we remember these holy men and women in a special way. The tradition arose from the early Christian custom of commemorating each martyr annually on the date of his or her death, or birth into heaven, a date therefore referred to in Latin as the martyr's dies natalis ("day of birth"). The Church also celebrates special events or happenings in the history of the Church with solemnities, feasts, and memorials. The saint days and other celebrations in the month of February are:
February 2 - The Feast of the Presentation of the Lord
February 5 - Saint Agatha, virgin & martyr
February 6 - Saint Paul Miki & Companions, martyrs
February 10 - Saint Scholastica, virgin
February 14 - Saint Cyril, monk & Methodius, bishop
February 22 - The Chair of Saint Peter the Apostle
All you holy men and women, pray for us!
