Oops! Sorry we missed this yesterday!!Happy Feast Day
Saint Margaret of Hungary
1242 - 1271
Feast Day: January 18
Patronage: against floods
St. Margaret of Hungary, Daughter of King Bela IV, became a Dominican novice at the age of twelve. Although she was a princess among nuns who were of noble descent, she objected to any special treatment and went out of her way to perform the most menial tasks and the most exacting labors on behalf of the squalid poor and most advanced hospital cases. The extend of her labors and fasting and hours of prayer brought on the fatigue of which she died on January 18.

251-356
Feast Day: January 17
Patronage: bakers, farmers, farm animals, cemetery workers, basket weavers, monks, butchers, protection against skin rashes and diseases, epilepsy, amputees
Saint Anthony the Abbot was the founder of Christian monasticism and it’s first Abbot. Considered a Desert Father, he led a life of severe asceticism and strove for complete solitude. After hearing the Gospel of Matthew 19:21 he gave away all his possessions and lived as a hermit. Through his intercession, he brought about miraculous healings, comforts to the suffering and wise guidance to his followers. He was a friend of St. Paul the Hermit and St. Athanasius wrote his biography.

Happy Feast Day
Our Lady of Pontmain (Our Lady of Hope) Print
1871
Feast Day: January 17
Patronage: Pontmain, France and Hope
In 1871, France was being devastated by the Franco-Prussian war. The Prussians were close to the town of Laval when on the evening of January 17, Eugene Barbedette and his brother Joseph saw an apparition of our Lady. A crowd gathered but only children could see the apparition, not adults. After the town gathered praying and singing, she told them that “God heard their prayers and fears and would answer their needs.” That same day, the Prussians halted their advances when their commander encountered an “invisible Madonna barring the way.” In May that same year, a peace treaty was signed. The local Bishop approved the apparition in 1872 and in 1908 the church was dedicated as a Basilica to Our Lady of Hope of Pontmain.

Saint Paul the Hermit
227-342
Feast day: January 15
Patronage: basket weavers, clothing industry, hermits, weavers
Saint Paul the Hermit, also called Paul of Thebes, a well educated Egyptian, was the first Christian hermit, embracing the life of solitude and penance. He fled to the desert to circumvent the Christian persecution of Decius and from plans of his brother to report him to authorities to gain control of his property. Paul lived as a vegetarian, using the leaves of a Palm tree for clothing. It’s said that a raven supplied him with bread. St. Anthony of Egypt was good friends with him and buried him, wrapped in a cloak given by St. Athanasius. St. Jerome wrote his biography.

Happy Feast Day
St. Hilary of Poitiers
Doctor of the Church
315-368
Feast day: January 13 (New), January 14 (Trad)
Patronage: Against rheumatism, snake bites, mothers, awkward children, the sick, Vervio, Italy, LaRochelle, France
Saint Hilary was born into a wealthy, pagan family, and educated in philosophy and rhetoric. He believed people should rise above their desires and live a life of virtue. This leads him to search for truth, where he “read” himself into the faith through the Gospels. There he found the confirmation of the one true God and our purpose of life, eternity. He was elected Bishop after his conversion, only soon to be exiled by the Arians. This gave him time to research and write on the Trinity and the nature of God, refuting the Arian Heresy. He was the first to compose hymns based on Scripture.
