Sts. Manaen and Joanna

May 24

The commemoration of Saint Manaen, Herod the Tetrarch’s foster-brother, who was a teacher in the Church at Antioch and lived as a prophet under the grace of the New Testament.

Also, the commemoration of blessed Joanna, the wife of Chuza, Herod’s steward, who with other women ministered to Jesus and the Apostles out of their own substance, and who on the day of the Lord’s resurrection found the stone rolled back from the tomb and announced it to the disciples.


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
