12 October

. . . .is the feast of St. Wilfred, Abbot of Lindisfarne and Bishop of York. When the great Father Faber first became a Catholic, he founded a small order named after St. Wilfred. It did not last, but for a short time there were "Wilfredites". There's more about St. Wilfred here and here.

It is also the traditional feast of Our Lady of the Pillar. Relying on unreliable memory here, but I believe it is Our Lady of the Pillar who is the Commander in Chief of the Armies of Spain.
