St. Stephen is the first martyr in the New Testament – a righteous and virtuous man who refused to hide his faith, even though it cost him his life. He was the first for Christ to suffer the sufferings of Christ and showed mortals how death is defeated.
He was a man strong in word and body, he confirmed the faithful in the faith and denounced the unbelievers.
His holiday is celebrated on the third day of Christmas – December 27.
