One more year old

Today is my birthday. A day for monks, missionaries, and martyrs.

St. Francis Borgia, pray for us!

This from the Catholic Encyclopedia:
"It is with good reason that Spain and the Church venerate in St. Francis Borgia a great man and a great saint. The highest nobles of Spain are proud of their descent from, or their connection with him. By his penitent and apostolic life he repaired the sins of his family and rendered glorious a name, which but for him, would have remained a source of humiliation for the Church. His feast is celebrated 10 October."

God works through all things for the good of those who love him.

From the aforementioned source, on the notorious Borgia papacy:
"The very indignation that the evil life of a great ecclesiastic rouses at all times ... is itself a tribute to the high spiritual ideal which for so long and on so broad a scale the Church has presented to the world in so many holy examples, and has therefore accustomed the latter to demand from priests."

Have mercy on us and on the whole world~

Happy birthday to SWP's arm,
S. lives on a farm,
He looks like a ostrich,
But an ostrich with charm!
