Saints in the Roman Canon (Part 27)

In the Roman Canon, after St. Ignatius, we find St. Alexander.

St. Alexander I was the fifth Pope after St. Peter.  He also brought about many wonderful conversions in Rome.  On May 3, 115 (?), he was beheaded outside of Rome on the Nomentan Way, together with the priests Eventius and Theodulus.  His holy relics now repose in the Church of St. Sabina at Rome.  The feast of St. Alexander occurs on May 3.

St. Alexander, pray for us!

For the Greater Glory of God,

Fr. Matt
