Feast of S. Eulalia, V & M

Today is the Feast of St. Eulalia, Virgin & Martyr. Her feast is observed with great solemnity in the city and Cathedral of Barcelona, where she is honored as the Patroness. The Order of Mercy, in its history, has regarded her with great devotion, even to using her Title in the early days as a part of the official title of the Order. Her lasting testimony and faith in Christ serves as a clear sign of the call to which we, the friars, have answered and the responsibility to forever proclaim our fidelity to Christ and His Church.

Gaudeamus omnes in Domino, diem festum celebrantes sub honore Eulaliae martyris: de cuius passione gaudent angeli, et collaudant Filium Dei.
