Pope Praises Witness of Saint Stephen at Angelus (Full Text)

Pope Francis praised the witness of Saint Stephen — the first martyr of the Church — on the Saint’s feast day, December 26, 2020.

Speaking from the Library of the Apostolic Palace before praying the noonday Angelus, the Pope reminded the faithful listening via social media around the world that “those who witness to Jesus shine with His light, not with their own light”.

The Holy Father continued by recalling that Stephen was innocent, a victim of hatred. He suffered the horrible death of stoning but still, let Jesus’ light shine.
