Saint Victor

“The Saint of the Day for July 28 is St. Victor I.

Date of birth unknown; pope from 189 to 199; died in 199, possibly martyrdom.

Victor was a native African and his father’s name was Felix. He is known for having obtained the release of Christians who had been deported to the mines of Sardinia and for being the first Pope to celebrate the liturgy and write Church documents in Latin rather than Greek.

He is most famous, however, for decreeing that Easter be universally celebrated on a Sunday, a practice already common in the West, but not so in the East.” – “Saint of the Day”, A Catholic View

This post on A Catholic View was a nice reminder. I like to try and remember who the Saint of the Day is for each day of the year. If you are looking for some patron saint information, I would suggest Hubpages.com. They have an excellent database of many Catholic saints.
