Sidenote: Yesterday was the Feast of Saint Gabriel Possenti, patron of college students and handgun owners.

We totally missed it.

Handgun owners and college students? That makes sense, in a "not really" kind of way. :-)

Listen, pal. Don't question Catholic saintage. It's just not done.

Must've been only a saint for not so long. Handguns haven't been out for that long.

Maybe they just needed a saint for those two things and felt like they could hit two aspects with one saint.

The Feast of Saint Gabriel Possenti, died 1862

Patron of college students, handgun owners

When a gang of ruffians threatened his village, Gabriel--then a young priest--appeared before them brandishing a pistol and, to prove he meant business, blew away a passing lizard.

--taken from Saint-a-Day calendar: Sunday, February 27

Two aspects with one saint?! *eye roll*

Everyone is just missing the beauty of the Catholic church... *sigh*

HEATHENS! ;)

Man, I'm really disapointed. That would have been perfect for us.

It would have been perfect for us. Alas! We'll have to wait for another year. Sigh.
