The Feast of St. Vincent of Saragossa, Deacon and Martyr
is today. There is information on him here. It is also the feast of his bishop, St. Valerius of Saragossa. In addition, this day is also the feast of three other saints named Vincent. (To any Pallottines out there, happy feast day !) There are also three beati commemorated this day- Blessed William Joseph Chaminade, Blessed William Patenson and Blessed Laura Vicuna. The last is particularly interesting as she was a young girl who was a victim of her mother's sinful lifestyle- appropriate on this day when we in the United States must mourn slaughtered innocents.
