Happy St. Thomas Of Villanueva/ Padre Pio/ Philander Chase Day! Oh, And Yom Kippur
Print Friendly and PDF
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 and Passover—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.
