Happy St Thomas of Villanueva
Day! In Spain in the sixteenth century, he organized a special college for Moorish converts
and also the evangelization of Mexico
. Oh and tomorrow (September 23) is the feast day of Padre Pio
, to whom my late first wife
had a special devotion. In my own Anglican communion, September 22 is the feast day
of the oddly-named Philander Chase
, Bishop of Ohio and Illinois.
Oh, and Yom Kippur begins at sundown and continues till Wednesday night.
VDARE.com does not advocate a War On Yom Kippur to counter the War On Christmas
. But it has now become a multicultural must to step on Christmas
by never mentioning it except in connection with other “holidays”, notably Hanukkah
, aptly described by American Heritage'
s Frederic Schwarz (December 2000) as the “Jewish Kwanzaa." Somehow, however, the MSM neglects to provide the nearest Saint`s day in the Christian calendar
to each year`s Rosh Hashanah
, Yom Kippur
—there are a lot of saints!—so it has become a VDARE.com service (as so often) to fill the gap.
Still, unlike the unpleasant War On Christmas perpetrators
, VDARE.com does wish everyone a Happy—sincerely.
