The Feast of St. Pio of Pietrelcina
is today. There is information on him here.

While he is undoubtedly an important saint, I'm afraid his canonization process gave me bouts of cause envy.Thinking "Now why aren't there Venerable Newman holy cards in every pamphlet rack and devotional pictures of him in every Catholic bookstore?" -that kind of thing. Plus I've occasionally had to correct folks who complimented me on "that great Padre Pio medal" when what I wear is, of course, a medal of St. Philip Neri .
