But the clouds are in motion and I expect patches of blue sky before too many more hours. It is the feast of Saint John de Sahagún, Confessor (Introibo); the a Sancto Facundo is presumably the Latin for the city of Sahagún; he was born at Sahagún and his proper name was Juan González del Castrillo. While I can understand and appreciate the use of the ancient Latin names for cities and geographical places, I can also see the usefulness of abandoning the custom when it is modern places at issue. The feast of the Martyrs Saints Basilides, Cyrinus, Nabor and Nazarius is commemorated after the 2nd day of the Octave of the Most Sacred Heart. In the Pauline Rite, today is the feast of the Immaculate Heart of Our Lady; when Pius XII instituted the feast, he fixed it on the Octave of Our Lady's Assumption, 22nd August, and so that is when it is celebrated in the so-called 'Extraordinary Form'.
Ante Sextam. Am having to fuss with errands-- the UPS Store (printing blank documents, for PERS retirement refund), the Library (two books), the supermarket (since I'm having the car I may as well stop in for a couple of the heavier items on the usual shopping list e.g. the large laundry detergent and bleach containers; a pain walking back with those sorts of things). The Library doesn't open until 1000, tsk, lazy fellows; what is the expression-- bankers' hours.
Post Sextam. It feels as if it's 85 degrees out with 90% humidity, although Science says it's 70 with 35%, pft. It is supposed to begin raining again later in the day. Lyft people are busy since the University is celebrating the graduation of who knows how many people. It totally escaped me until I arrived back at the house that I have to do Lyft again this afternoon, for the 'Vigil Mass' at 1730. Tsk.
It is also the feast of Saint Onofrius (5th century), of Saint Odolfus (9th century), and of Saint Leo III (9th century).
V. Et álibi aliórum plurimórum sanctórum Mártyrum et Confessórum, atque sanctárum Vírginum. R. Deo grátias.
