Blog: The First Saint

by Julie Rask

Oct 04, 2020

Who was the very first saint? You would seem to think the answer is St Stephen. After all, Stephen was our first deacon (Acts 6:1-6). Stephen is also the first martyr mentioned in the Bible (Acts 7: 54-60). Martyrdom alone makes Stephen a saint. But, is Stephen our very first saint?

Let’s look at the definition of a ‘Saint’. “A Saint is a holy person who has died united with God. The Church has said that this person is now with God forever in Heaven.” (Finding God; Loyola Press. A Jesuit Ministry) St Stephen certainly fits that definition. Does that mean that St Stephen is the very first Saint. Actually, St Stephen is not the first saint.

The very first saint was the ‘good thief’ on the cross next to Jesus. ‘And he said to Jesus, “Remember me, Jesus, when you come as King”. Jesus said to him, ‘I promise you that today you will be in Paradise with me.” Lk 23:42-43
