Saint of the Day – 11 January – Saint Anastasius of Suppentonia (Died c 570) Monk, Abbot of the Monastery at Suppendonia, Italy. Died in c 570 at Suppentonia, Italy of natural causes. Patronage – of Castel Saint’Elia, Italy. Also known as – Anastasius of Castel Sant’Elia, Anastasius X.

The Roman Martyrology reads today: “At Suppentonia, near Mount Socrates, the holy Monk Anastasius and his companions, who were called by a voice from Heaven to enter the Kingdom of God.”

A source on Anastasius’ life is St Gregory the Great, who wrote that an Angel appeared to summon Anastasius and all of the Abbot’s Monks. Anastasius and all of his Monks all subsequently died one after the other within the next eight days.

St Nonnosus (Died c 570) Monk, was one of Anastasius’ Monks.


Passionate Catholic. Being a Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. This Site is placed under the Patronage of my many favourite Saints and especially, St Paul. "For the Saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and I pray all those who visit here will be abundantly blessed. Pax et bonum! 🙏
