The Feast of Blessed Benedict Daswa has been approved by Rome for 01 February. This feast may be celebrated in all SACBC Dioceses and Parishes as a Memorial. The liturgical colour is Red as Blessed Benedict died a Martyr.
The Sacred Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments has officially approved proper Liturgical texts for the Celebration of the Eucharist and for the Liturgy of the Hours. These texts are available on the official Benedict Daswa Website:
People throughout the SACBC Dioceses are encouraged to pray for the favours and graces they need during nine days prior to the Feast on 1 February. This novena will commence on 23 January and conclude on 31 January.
People are invited to perform three acts of kindness each day of the Novena in remembrance of the three acts of charity which Blessed Benedict performed the day he was martyred.
