Saint of the Day – January 31

January 31, 2012

Today we celebrate the feast day of St Marcella!  Marcella lived in Ancient Rome and died in AD 410.  A widow after only 7 months of marriage, she devoted the remainder of her life to holiness.  She lived the life of an ascetic.  Devoting her life to prayer and the study of Scripture, she was an inspiration to man.
