Today is the feast of St. Moses, lawgiver and prophet in the Old Testament.
Many people do not realize that may Old Testament figures are considered by Holy Mother Church to be saints. Many of them are listed in editions of the Roman Martyrology, both pre-Conciliar and post.
Here is today’s entry for Moses.
1. Commemoratio sancti Moysis, prophetae, quem Deus elegit, ut populum in Aegypto oppressum liberaret et in terram promissionis adduceret; cui etiam in monte Sina sese revelavit dicens: “Ego sum qui sum”, atque legem proposuit, quae vitam populi electi regeret. Ille servus Dei in monte Nebo terrae Moab coram terra promissionis plenus dierum obiit.
Anyone want to take a crack at What The Martyrology Really Says?
Also, a question/request to readers:
Have any of you ever seen a stained-glass window of Moses at the cleft in the rock in Exodus 33?
I would like a good photo.
