Feast of Saint Polycarp (23 February 2017)

Today in our liturgical calendar we celebrate the early father and martyr of the Church with the strange-sounding name of Polycarp.  If we spoke Greek, we wouldn’t find it so strange-sounding, because the prefix “poly-” in Greek means “many,” and “karpos” means “fruit.”  Thus this child who was born just about 125 years after Our Lord’s ascension into heaven and the great event of Pentecost, was given the name Polycarp to indicate the wish that he bear many fruits, or much fruit—one of the favorite concepts of scripture.  413 more words
