St. Stephen

St. Stephen the First Martyr (c. 34AD) was one of the first Deacons of the Church. A Deacon is specially appointed to serve the Church. St. Stephen was filled with the Holy Spirit and worked miracles and signs among the people. Some Jewish leaders who were against Christians tried to debate with him but he was much wiser than them. St. Stephen said, ‘I can see heaven thrown open and Jesus standing at the right hand of God.’ They were mad at him and killed him by throwing stones at him. Before he died, St. Stephen said, 'Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.’ His feast day is on 26 December.
