Made my walk this morning seem like a slow paddle through a warm bath. But it was the first time since buying them that I didn't wear my overalls out, and I omitted my support hose, and left most of my shirt buttons undone during the outward leg when it was still fairly dark-- in any case, the next time I have to go out it will (according to the mages, anyway) be rather cooler. It is the feast of the martyrs Saints Hippolytus and Cassian (Introibo, CE, Wiki and here). The legenda of Saint Hippolytus was pretty confused over the centuries, ahem, and the joint celebration of Cassian and Hippolytus doesn't seem, in these latter days, to make a great deal of sense; Saints Hippolytus and Pontian are celebrated today in the Pauline Calendar and I believe Saint Cassian is left to the particular calendars. In any case, today's Mass is Salus autem iustórum a Dómino. The Introit doesn't pop up in the YT search here so I'll go with Victoria's motet for several martyrs Gaudent in caelis.
Late to Prime, tsk.
Post Vesperas. A day for Eustace de Caurroy and my books. Not quite as obnoxious as yesterday-- up to perhaps 94 earlier, down to 89 now, and 75 by 2200. The silly mages said that there was to be half an hour of light rain, a drizzle, in fact. Not here, not here.
It is also the feast of Saint Radegonda (6th century), of Saint Sventibold (10th century), and of Saint John (17th century).
