The vigil of a great feast for all Fr. Z readers!

ALERT!  I hereby dispense any and all of you reticent about shopping on Sunday so that you can go forth to gather celebratory provisions for tomorrow’s glorious feast.

Tomorrow, 22 October, is the Feast of…

Sts. Nunilo and Alodia!

Perhaps paella would be appropriate?

I’d sure like to have some paella…. and Mystic Monk Coffee.

More later.

    It is also the feast of Bl. John Paul II!

    I used to observe this feast by using the appropriate common in the Liturgy of the Hours… until Blessed John Paul the Great was beatified… and just last week, the Holy See approved the USCCB’s decision of last year to add his feast to the US calendar as an optional memorial.

    I wonder when I could transfer the feast of Saints Nunilo and Alodia and recite it as a votive office…?! So many saints, so few days in the year!

    I am not sure what would be considered typical food in Huesca. suggests chicken with red peppers or “Ternasco” a local lamb dish. I think paella would be found closer to the Med, but it may be the closest I can get to it in Texas. :-)

    I did borrow the city flag for a temporary avatar in their honor…

    But that is merely an optional memorial, so in communities where Ss. Nunilo and Alodia is one of the Great Feasts, Bl. John Paul II need not be observed.

    Can a priest really grant a dispensation over the web? Hmmmm…. :)

    Jone’s Moral Theology says no. :-)

    But why separate N, A, and JPII? Surely they are all resisters of tyranny and defenders of religious freedom.
