Bishop Martyrs

Popes and other bishops who have gone before us.  Pray for us.

Photo taken in Amalfi Cathedral. 


  1. Saint Denis, first bishop of Paris. Glad to see his statue in Amalfi's cathedral

  2. Today is the feast of St. Denis, the third century Bishop of Paris who was martyred for his faith. Legend has it that after his beheading, he picked up his head and walked for six miles, preaching a sermon the entire way!
