Bl John Soreth, O. Carm.

I have a funeral to do this morning in Montebello so this will be just a short mention. But today is the feast day of one of my favourite saints, Blessed John Soreth. He was Prior General of the undivided Carmelite Order in the 15th century. The Ancient Observance keep his day on July 24 but the Discalced have moved it to the 28th due to the conflict with the feasts of some of our nuns who were martyred by the Spanish communists.

There is a little bit about him here.
