The Feast of Saint Sebastian

Only a foot soldier of Christ could fearlessly face being tied to a tree and shot full of arrows. Saint Sebastian survived this execution attempt and returned to tell Roman emperor Diocletian to repent for his sins. Diocletian’s answer was to have Saint Sebastian beaten to death and his body thrown in the sewers of Rome circa 288 AD.

Here is a short film that takes you to the Basilica where Saint Sebastian is honored on January 20, his feast day. The faithful can visit both the church and the catacombs where his remains are believed to be buried. – Ginny Prior
