SAINT OF THE DAY

St. Benjamin

St. Benjamin

St. Benjamin (d. 424) was a deacon martyred in Persia during a forty-year-long Christian persecution under two tyrannical Persian kings. Imprisoned for a year due to his Christian faith, he was then released with the help of the Eastern Roman Emperor Theodosius II. As a condition of his release, he was ordered to no longer publicly proclaim his faith. Benjamin declared that it was his duty to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and he refused to be silenced. He continued preaching Christ crucified, and when word reached the king, he was rearrested. In response, Benjamin asked the king what opinion he would have of any of his subjects if they were to renounce their allegiance to the king and join in war against him. In the same way Benjamin could not renounce his allegiance to Christ. This enraged the king and he ordered Benjamin to endure cruel tortures. Sharpened reeds were repeatedly jammed underneath his fingernails, toenails, and other tender parts of the body. He died when a knotted stake was jammed into his bowels. St. Benjamin's feast day is celebrated on March 31.

jesus with disciples

When Jesus and his disciples drew near to Jerusalem,
to Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives,
he sent two of his disciples and said to them,
“Go into the village opposite you,
and immediately on entering it,
you will find a colt tethered on which no one has ever sat.
Untie it and bring it here.
If anyone should say to you,
‘Why are you doing this?’ reply,
‘The Master has need of it
and will send it back here at once.’”
So they went off
and found a colt tethered at a gate outside on the street,
and they untied it.
Some of the bystanders said to them,
“What are you doing, untying the colt?”
They answered them just as Jesus had told them to,
and they permitted them to do it.
So they brought the colt to Jesus
and put their cloaks over it.
And he sat on it.
Many people spread their cloaks on the road,
and others spread leafy branches
that they had cut from the fields.
Those preceding him as well as those following kept crying out:
“Hosanna!
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
Blessed is the kingdom of our father David that is to come!
Hosanna in the highest!”

Stop The Violence!

Verity was founded in 1974 in Sonoma County as a crisis line that men, women, or children who had been sexually assaulted could call.

That crisis line is still the only one of its kind in Sonoma County and operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Call (707) 545-7273 for help.
The local YWCA hot line is (707) 546-1234, also available 24/7.
