I have a calendar and for July, it seems very full...maybe I will post a few of these, St. Kateri's feast day is July 14th, so I know she is one that many of us, especially in North America do not care to miss. July 5th, yesterday, was St. Elizabeth of Portugal's feast day. Saint of the Month: St Elizabeth of Portugal | Galway Cathedral St. Elizabeth of Portugal - Saints & Angels - Catholic Online July 6th, yes, St. Maria Goretti, I see there is even a French movie on this well-known Saint beside the modern movie that many of us have seen.: I know of a blogger of some renown though, I'd find it hard to find her blog now, but the feast day of St. Maria Goretti upset her. The blogger claimed to have been raped in her younger years, so it upset her a bit when this feast day came. July 9th is the feast day of St. Augustine Zhao Rong and companions: Augustine Zhao Rong, is one of a group of 120 Catholics, among many more who were martyred between the years 1648 and 1930 in China. Having come to China through Syria in the seventh century, down through the centuries Christianity has in turn thrived or gone into hiding, contingent upon the relations of China with the outside world.

Before the time of today’s saint, to be a monk meant to wander into the Syrian desert and never come back, to climb a rocky summit in the Sinai and never descend, to sit cross-legged atop a pillar, to fast to emaciation, or to remain wordless as a hermit in a damp cave in Lebanon. Saint Benedict changed all of this. This revolutionary introduced evolutionary change, a new way for monks to be radically committed to Christ. No more would a monk have to perch like a hawk in its eyrie, alone, gazing over the valley below. When Benedict opened his mouth and called the monk out of his desert, down from his mountain, off of his pillar, and out of his cave, monks answered. Benedict founded Western monasticism, the communities of monks who pray, eat, work, and socialize together in a common chapel, refectory, field, and workshop. Benedictine monks created Europe out of the vacuum of blackness and disorder which enveloped the land after Roman order disintegrated. So many centuries later, the pioneering path that Benedict cut for Western civilization is difficult to appreciate. What was fresh is now ancient. What was revolutionary is now just the way things are. So, right, now, the Benedictine Cross seems to always be a big deal.
