The Feast of St. John Ogilvie, S.J., Priest and Martyr
is today. There is information on him here. Since I spend so much time blogging on the Martyrs of England and Wales, it's probably only fair to mention this Scottish martyr as well.

It is also the feast of St. Dominic Savio, and of St. John of Vallumbrosa. While the former is a great model of youthful purity, I find the latter even more interesting because he was a penitent who had once been ensnared by the occult- a growing temptation in our world today.
