Saint Fabian, Pope and Martyr Short life History

Saint Fabian was a citizen and Burgess of Rome, and it happened when the pope died, the people assembled for to choose another pope.

Saint Fabian came to the election to know who should be elected but turned out to be the chosen one. Anon, a white dove descended from heaven and rested upon his head, and when the people saw that they marveled much, and all they by common accord chose him for to be pope.

This holy man Fabian ordained throughout all the countries, seven deacons, and to them seven sub-deacons, to write the lives of martyrs.

There was a sinful emperor in his time named Philip. He came to the vigil of Easter in to the church. During holy communion, the pope drove him away and denied to him the Holy Communion, until he confessed his sins.

Today’s Catholic Quote:

After 13 years of Papacy, Decius the emperor commanded to that the Pope be beheaded. He was crowned with the crown of martyrdom the year of our Lord 253.
