Our Lady and Sheen

St. Pantaleon

My handy dandy iPieta on my iPod tells me that  the saint of the day in the traditional calendar is St. Pantaleon, martyr.  It also tells me that there are 4 readings instead of just 1 normally before the gospel.  It’s the first time I’ve found this anomaly, I will have to look up why this is.

St. Pantaleon is one of the 14 Holy Helpers and also shares the privilege of being a Holy Unmercenary along with two of my favorite saints, Cosmas and Damian.  I love when I stumble across cool things. 🙂

P.S. If iPieta needs a spokesman, let me know!
