Wed, 10 Feb 2021 05:00:00 GMT Feast of St. Paul's Shipwreck https://encyclopedia2.thefreedictionary.com/Feast+of+St.+Paul%27s+Shipwreck //encyclopedia2.thefreedictionary.com/Feast+of+St.+Paul%27s+Shipwreck#2021 This feast is a commemoration in Malta of the shipwreck of St. Paul on the island in 60 CE, an event told about in the New Testament. When storms drove the ship aground, Paul was welcomed by the "barbarous people" (meaning they were not Greco-Romans). According to legend, he got their attention when a snake bit him on the hand but did him no harm, and he then healed people of diseases. Paul is the patron saint of Malta and snakebite victims. The day is a public holiday, and is observed with family gatherings and religious ceremonies and processions.

Tue, 9 Feb 2021 05:00:00 GMT St. Maron's Day https://encyclopedia2.thefreedictionary.com/St.+Maron%27s+Day //encyclopedia2.thefreedictionary.com/St.+Maron%27s+Day#2021 St. Maron (also spelled St. Maroun), the patron saint of Lebanon, was a monk who died in 410 CE. The Feast of St. Maron, as it is known in Lebanon, does not have the cultural significance for its citizens that it had in past eras—today, Maronites only make up one-quarter of the Lebanese population (between one-half and one million). In Lebanon and abroad, the most common ceremony of the feast day is the Maronite liturgy, which is a distinctive blend of Catholic doctrine, Arabic music, and singing in Syriac-Aramaic, a classical language that was spoken by Jesus.
