13 JUNE

Today is the feast of the great St. Anthony of Padua, Franciscan priest and doctor of the Church. He's also the patron "in charge" of finding lost objects. The tradition is to promise him a donation for the poor if he will find your lost object. Absent-minded as I am, I keep him on retainer.

You can take a virtual tour of Padua here.

[I plan to expand this a bit later. Right now, I am off to play for a funeral in the valley.]

Oh, yes. And this is also my sister-in-law's birthday: Happy Birthday, Goretti.
