    I love St. Stephen. I ask him to pray for me. I am a Catholic convert, in 1995. So, learning about the saints is new to me. This site is such a blessing to me. Thank you Catholic.org.

    St Stephen, first martyr of the Catholic Church, your death by stoning did not deter you from praying for your murders. You experienced a theophany, in which you saw God the Father and God the Son. Pray for us holy saint, on this your feast day. Bless us and pray for us to be like you. May we serve God always. Amen

    St. Stephen, Please pray for my son Stephen, He needs your prayers to get him through some serious legal problems. He is a good, and loving person, but desperately needs your prayers on 'This' 'Your Day'. Please don't forget him. Thank you, from a gracious, loving mom.

    The patron saint of Hungary is St. Stephen OF HUNGARY. He was the first king, crowned in 1000AD. Not St. Stephen from the Bible.
