The Feast of St. Albert Chmielowski, Founder
is today. There is information on him here. It is notable that Karol Wojtyla wrote a successful play about him in 1949, and that in 1997, after Karol Wojtyla had become Pope John Paul II, the play was made into a movie.
It is also the feast of St. Herve, Abbot, who gave us the great quote, "He who obeys not the rudder will obey the reef"- a saying too often proved these days-,St. Gregory Barbarigo, Cardinal, who worked for the reunion of Catholics and Orthodox, and St. Botulph, O.S.B., Abbot.

You know, St. Botulph is the namesake of Boston...Botuphstown.
