    Do they still call optional memorials “simples?”

    Forgive those so ignorant we only speak one language and not that well. What does it say?
    –> hilariously I have to ask is this latin or Italian? My ignorance is incredible.

  3. VexillaRegis says:

    Dear Thomas777,
    it’s Italian. It says:” MAY 8th Sunday
    7th Easter Sunday
    (Italy (s) Ascension of the Lord)
    St Victor, Milanese martyr (6th century)
    St Boniface, pope, d 615,
    St Benedict II, pope, d 685,
    St Arsene, roman deacon, anchorite (sp?)(hermit) in Egypt, 4th or 5th cent.
    Word day of social communications.

    Regarding the Madonna of Pompei, see Fr. Z’s post on her today.

    If you have an iPhone or iPad, the RC Calendar by Universalis is pretty good.

    thomas, not so hilarious, sometimes it is hard to tell the difference, especially if you aren’t looking at complete sentences with lots of words. I only speak English and have the tiniest reading knowledge of some others for work in a very narrow field of study. No big deal, I just can’t handle more. Some have lots of facility with language, I don’t.

    I would like to have a calendar like this one. Anyone know if these are available to purchase online?
