December 26th, Feast of Saint Stephen

Rememeber, it's still Christmas.

It's also the Feast day of Saint Stephen, Deacon and First Martyr of the Church.

"The Stoning of Saint Stephen" by Pietro da Cortona

"The Stoning of Saint Stephen" by Vasari

I probably don't have to explain who Saint Stepehen was, so I'll just give a link for those who want to know more.
