Saint of the Day

St. Elzear and Bl. Delphina (14th century)
Elzear was a wealthy count. He and his wife Delphina became Secular Franciscans and dedicated themselves to charitable works. Every day, they invited poor people to their home to dine with them. Everyone in their household went to Mass daily and Confession weekly. After Elzear's death, Delphina continued her works of charity for 35 more years.
