Feb. 23, 2017 (memorial of St. Polycarp)

St. Polycarp is living proof of what we call “the Apostolic Succession,” i.e. how the Bishops are connected to the original 12 Apostles. Polycarp was a disciple of St. John, the Apostle. He will have among his disciples St. Irenaeus. And so on, to our day in the person of Bishop Holley. Our Church is one, holy, catholic, and apostolic.
