The Feast of St. Peter Chrysologus, Bishop and Doctor of the Church
is today. There is information on him here.
It is also the feast of St. Leopold Mandic, O.F.M. Cap., Priest- the only saint I've ever come across who was six inches shorter than me-and of Blessed Thomas Abel, Priest and Martyr, Blessed Richard Featherstone, Priest and Martyr, and Blessed Edward Powell , Priest and Martyr.. The last was a fellow of Oriel College, Oxford- a distinction shared by one of my favorite people.

Finally, it is the anniversary of the day the current Provost of the Pittsburgh Oratory began his novitiate. Happy anniversary, Fr. David ! Gaudete semper and ad multos annos !
