Saint of the Day for January 8
Today, while making my rounds around the internet, I happened across 3 different Catholic sites (I won't say what sites) that have incorrectly identified today's saint as being Saint Apollinaris, bishop of Ravenna. His feast or memorial day is actually on July 23.
The saint for today is Saint Apollinaris of Hierapolis. His feast day is January 8. His short biography appears on “Saints of the Faith”.
