Saint for the Day August 1st.

St. Peter ad Vincula.

A feast observed on August 1st in the Western world, Lammas Day, formerly observed as a sort of early harvest thanksgiving, loaves of the new corn being blessed at Mass.  It was the day of the dedication of the basilica of St. Peter-in-Chains, so called because there were (and are) preserved relics of the chains with which he was confined in prison.  The Veneration of the Precious Chain of the Holy and Illustrious Apostle Peter is celebrated in the Byzantine Rite on January 16th.
