Here is a post I did about St. Isidore the Farmer, at the site for our parish FNE group.
Tomorrow is the feast of the St Joseph. Devotion to St. Joseph is certainly not the most ancient in the Church (at least in the West), but I think it is especially fitting that popular devotion to him has grown significantly over the last couple of centuries. His feast day was put on the Roman […]
“They openly declared that they were Christians, and that the Christian faith is necessary to salvation.” This is from the third lesson of Matins for today’s feast of Sts Cosmas and Damian. This is what they told the Roman prefect when they were arrested on charges of being Christians. What stood out to me, was […]
The wonderful feast of the Assumption reminded me of this other beautiful devotion to our Lady in the Easter churches. We live about forty minutes from an Greek Orthodox church, and one of our family friends is a member there. Our friend invited us there a while ago for their Akathist Hymn. Every Friday evening […]
I thought I would share a few pictures from our celebration of the Nativity of John the Baptist. The party was last Saturday the 29th (Feast of Sts. Peter and Paul) which would have also been during the Octave of John’s Nativity prior to 1955. I’ll start by noting that it had rained here […]

He is best known for his Ecclesiastical History of the English People, but he wrote many other work as well including poetry, hymns, biblical commentaries, […]

UPDATE: For a picture of our feast, see below. I should probably post about feast days I haven’t posted about before. But certain feasts always draw my attention and rouse me post something ( a rare occurence these days!). Being a natural born traditionalist, I have a prediliction for the feasts that were most revered […]
