Santarama

Ever find yourself rocked from a sound sleep at 5AM by fireworks and church bells, and wonder, holy crap, what the fuck is all the noise about? Here's a link we found earlier today that may prove helpful: Catholic Online's Saint of the Day search engine! This morning, the bells were likely ringing for St. Marguerite d'Youville. Or maybe not. Saints appear to outnumber days about about eight to one, so it could also have been St. Gemma Galgan, St. Antipas, St. Barsanuphius, St. Domnio, St. Godebertha, St. Machai, St. Maedhog, or St. Philip of Gortyna.

Tomorrow, we'll be feasting St Julius. See you at sunrise.

Maybe we can get Governor "Joe Highway" (Pepe Calzada) to take note.
