St. Agabus

[I forgot to post this saint on his feast day, so it’s coming late.  Sorry!  But I want to go ahead and put up the martyrology entry for the sake of the completeness of the project.]

April 8

The commemoration of Saint Agabus, the prophet who, as the book of Acts testifies, signified by the Spirit a great famine that was to come on all the earth and the torments Paul was to receive at the hands of the gentiles.

***

May Holy Mary and all the saints intercede to the Lord for us, that we may merit to be helped and saved by him who lives and reigns for ever and ever.

V. Precious in the sight of the Lord

R. Is the death of his holy ones.

V. May the Lord bless us, protect us from all evil, and bring us to everlasting life.  And may the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in pace.

R. Amen
