Roman Catholic Saints H-L Names Index - Feast Days
There are Roman Catholic Saints for practically every day of the year and these are referred to as the Feast Days. What is the origin and meaning of the Roman Catholic Saint's Feast Days? Most saints have specially designated feast days which are associated with a specific day of the year and these are referred to as the saint's feast day which is detailed in the Roman Catholic Saints H-L Index. The Roman Catholic Saint's feast days first arose from the very early Christian custom of the annual commemoration of martyrs on the dates of their deaths, at the same time celebrating their birth into heaven. Eventually, as time passed, practically every day of the year had at least one saint who was commemorated on that date - a Roman Catholic Saint of the day.
