Obscure Saint of the Day: St. Antipas

Happy weekend, you genius hipsters!

Today is the feast of St. Antipas!


Antipas should be way more well known that he is. 

He was a disciple of St. John the Apostle, who called Antipas "my faithful witness." 

He even gets name dropped in Revelation!

Tradition tells us that this Bishop of Pergamum was burned to death as a martyr. 

St. Antipas, pray for us!

  1. I know that you live where Satan’s throne is, and yet you hold fast to my name and have not denied your faith in me, not even in the days of Antipas, my faithful witness, who was martyred among you, where Satan lives. - Revelations 2:13
