1 August: Vatican calendar

Here is today’s page from the calendar printed by the Holy See for use in the offices of the curia and other institutions.

Notice that, in addition to it being the feast of the great Doctor St. Alphonsus de’ Liguori, it is also that of Bl. Peter Favre, SJ (who and sure pronounced his name correctly, a concept the folks in Green Bay – and the quarterback himself – just don’t seem to grasp).  It is the feast of the Seven Maccabees, as I mentioned in another entry, and also the feast of the dedication of the Roman church, San Pietro in Vincoli, where you find the statue of Moses by Michelangelo.

    Yeah, but could Bl. Peter lead his team to victory in the last four minutes of a game when they’re 14 points behind and the windchill is 20 below?

    Go Pack!

  2. Tim: Not sure about that. But he might be able to lead someone to heaven and out of protestant heresies.

    You mean Cheeseheads can’t pronounce a name correctly? I’m shocked, shocked (not)
    Must be all that body paint and brain freezing going on at Lambeau.

    Go Vikes!

  4. Cathy of Alex: Yes, that seems to be the case. WI puzzles me. Though if memory serves, I believe that the GB QG is from Mississippi originally. That said, I think we should leave this line of reasoning!
