Artist: Carlo Crivelli – c. 1476

Crivelli painted two altarpieces for the small church of San Domenico, in the town of Ascoli Piceno in the Italian Marche. A large, multi-paneled altarpiece sat on the high altar, while a smaller altarpiece was in a side chapel. In the nineteenth century parts of both altarpieces were sold to a Russian prince, Anatole Demidoff, who mounted them in a grand frame to make a three-tiered altarpiece for the chapel of his villa in Florence. The National Gallery bought the Altarpiece in 1868, and in 1961 the panels from the smaller polyptych were removed. They are now displayed separately.

Thomas Aquinas was an Italian Dominican friar, philosopher, Catholic priest, and Doctor of the Church. An immensely influential philosopher, theologian, and jurist in the tradition of scholasticism, he is also known within the latter as the Doctor Angelicus and the Doctor Communis.

His feast day is January 28.

“God the Lord surrendered his own Son to death on the cross for the fervent love of creation… Yet this was not because he could not redeem us in another way, but so that his surpassing love, manifested hereby, might be a teacher unto us. And by the death of his Only-begotten Son he made us near to himself. Yea, if he had had anything more precious, he would have given it to us, so that by it our race might be his own.”

“As a grain of sand cannot counterbalance a great quantity of gold, so in comparison God’s use of justice cannot counterbalance his mercy. Like a handful of sand thrown into the great sea, so are the sins of the flesh in comparison with the mind of God. And just as a strongly flowing spring is not obscured by a handful of dust, so the mercy of the Creator is not stemmed by the vices of his creatures.”

“You have given your entire treasure to the world: if you gave the only-begotten from your bosom and from the throne of your Being for the benefit of all, what further do you have which you have not given to your creation? The world has become mingled with God, and creation and Creator have become one!”

The inscriptions on either side of the head of St. Isaac in this icon are in ancient Syriac, while that beneath his feet is in modern Arabic, both of which languages are used by the Christians of Iraq, the land where he lived and died.

His feast day is January 28.

Mary is cause of our joy, because, under God, she gives us Jesus, the Source of all joy. Mary is cause of our ever-increasing joy, because she always unites us, if we allow her, to the Heart of Jesus.

Angela Merici or Angela de Merici was an Italian religious educator, who is honored as a saint by the Catholic Church. She founded the Company of St. Ursula in 1535 in Brescia, in which women dedicated their lives to the service of the Church through the education of girls.

“You will accomplish more by kind words and a courteous manner than by anger or sharp rebuke, which should never be used except in necessity.”
–Saint Angela Merici

Her feast day is January 27.

Angela Merici lived in a time when most girls were not educated unless they were in a convent. Angela's goal was to strengthen Christian families by educating the girls who would later be wives and mothers. She founded the Company of Saint Ursula. The women who joined her were instructed to practice a rule of life which included celibacy, poverty and obedience from their own homes while teaching the girls in their own neighborhoods. The Ursulines, as they were called, were a huge success, numbering 24 communities in the region by the time Angela died in 1540.

After her death, her new order spread rapidly with the help and encouragement of Bishop Charles Borromeo (also a Saint). He encouraged the sisters to live in community instead of in their own homes. Communities were soon established in France, Germany, Belgium, Holland, Switzerland, Canada and the United States. Today, thousands of Ursulines serve God on six continents.

Her feast day is Jan 27.

Artist: Giuseppe Bottani – c. 1740

The Roman noblewomen Saint Eustochium and her mother Paula were disciples of Saint Jerome. Here they are shown leaving for the Holy Land, where they built four monasteries.

The picture was painted in Rome, where Bottani worked with Pompeo Batoni. It is a finished study for Bottani's masterpiece, a large altarpiece commissioned in 1745 for the church of Saints Cosmas and Damian, Milan, and now in the Pinacoteca di Brera, Milan.

St. Paula’s feast day is January 26.

St. Eustochium’s feast day is September 28.

Timothy was born in Lystra, in what is now eastern Turkey. His mother and Grandmother were early converts to Christianity. He accompanied St. Paul on his travels throughout Asia Minor and Greece, eventually going as far as Rome. Paul sent Timothy back to Ephesus as the city’s first bishop.

Timothy was a particularly zealous man. At one point Paul had to advise him to improve his diet because his austerities were damaging his health. In the year 97 he was clubbed to death when he tried to interfere in a non-Christian religious festival. He is most famous for the many references Paul makes to him in his letters.
His feast day is Jan 26.

Timothy is one of the first generations of Christians in the New Testament. His father was Greek and his mother, Eunice, was a Jewish-Christian. His grandmother, Lois, was the first in his family to become Christian. Timothy became an associate of St. Paul, helping him in his work in the churches at Corinth and Esphesus.

Most likely, Timothy became the leader of the church at Ephesus at a young age. While we have little information about Timothy's work as leader of this community, we know from St. Paul that leadership in the early church was a difficult task, particularly for a person so young. The leader of the community was required to exhort people to live according to the spirit of Jesus Christ. Sometimes this meant recognizing the ways that the Gospel was at work in a specific group and other times it meant telling a community when it was failing to live as Jesus Christ. Just as Paul was frequently despised for his leadership, one can assume that Timothy also suffered because of the Gospel. In fact, legend tells us that Timothy was stoned and beaten to death for preaching against a pagan festival in Ephesus around the year 94.

His feast day is Jan 26.

Saint Francis de Sales was born in France to a noble family. His father had big plans for a scholarly or political career for him and had even chosen a charming bride, but Francis held secret plans in his heart. He wanted to give his life to God. He was slow to act on his desires until one day when he kept falling from his horse and three times when his sword and scabbard landed in the shape of a cross, when they hit the ground, Francis finally got the message. His gentleness and refined education later earned him the nickname “the Gentlemen Saint.”

Francis was a scholar, writer, spiritual guide, pastor, diplomat, bishop and Doctor of the Church. He had some great cutting edge ideas. He was the first to print religious pamphlets which he slid under people’s doors when they wouldn't open the door to his preaching. He was the first to give deep spiritual direction to lay people, believing they too could have a close relationship with God, even in the midst of their busy secular lives. He wrote hundreds of letters and two books which are still Catholic classics today. He made people feel good, revealing to them the gentle heart of God.

His feast day is Jan 24.
