St Agabus, Martyr

913agabus5

Today is Ferial day and the Mass and Divine Office do not commemorate a Saint or Blessed.

However taken from the Roman Martyrology is the story of St Agabus.

He was a martyr and one of the seventy-two disciples mentioned by St. Luke. He was a Jewish convert to the faith, noted as a prophet. Agabus predicted a famine in the Roman Empire and probably Paul’s imprisonment. Agabus was unable to dissuade Paul from going to Jerusalem. The martyr died for the faith in the city of Antioch.
