Today's Feasts

August 7, 2007

Today we celebrate the feast of Saint Cajetan of Thienna (Gaetano dei Conti di Tiene). Born 1480 in Vicenza, in Venetian territory; died at Naples in 1547. He is the Founder of the Clerks Regular (C.R.) or Theatines.

Also today, Saint Donatus. From the Martyrology: At Arezzo in Tuscany the death of the holy bishop Donatus. Besides other miracles, he restored, by means of his prayer, a chalice broken by pagans, according to the account of Pope St. Gregory I. He was slain under Julian the Apostate about the year 363.

In the Novus Ordo:
Optional Memorial of Sts. Sixtus II, pope and martyr and companions, martyrs; and,
Optional Memorial of St. Cajetan, priest
