St. Stephen

Happy Feast of St. Stephen!

St. Stephen was the first Christian martyr... He was one of the seven deacons who helped the apostles; he was "filled with faith and with the Holy Spirit," and was "full of fortitude." The Church draws a comparison between the disciple and his Master, emphasizing the imitation of Christ even unto the complete gift of self. His name is included in the Roman Canon. (~from Catholicculture.org)

Some traditional recipes for this feast, including St. Stephen's scrambled eggs, stew, whiskey punch and horns...these recipes can be found on Catholic culture's site (link provided above).
