Nuestra Señora de Oviedo / Our Lady of Oviedo, Spain (711) – 2 May:
St Athanasius (c 295-373) – Confessor, Father and Doctor of the Church, “Father of Orthodoxy,” Bishop of Alexandria, Defender of the true faith, throughout his life he opposed the Arian heresy. By denying the Godhead of the Word, the Arians turned Christ into a mere man, only higher in grace than others in the eyes of God. St Athanasius took part in the Council of Nicea in 325 and until the end remained a champion of the faith, as it was defined by the Council. In him, the Church venerates one of her Great Fathers and Doctors. He was subjected to persecutions for upholding the true teaching concerning the person of Christ and was sent into exile from his See no less than five times. He died at Alexandria in 373 after an Episcopate of forty-six years.
St Antoninus of Florence OP (1389-1459) “Antoninus the Counsellor,” Dominican Priest, Bishop, Confessor.
Although today is the date of his death, his feast day is actually kept on the 10th of this month.
