28 March

Today is the Feast day of
Saint Hesychius of Jerusalem
Among many other saints.

Doubts Galore! Undecided
I am having second thoughts again about the Calender I have chosen to follow. Shin you remember a few months back I had a similar problem  and I changed to American Catholics. Well, They have listed all these saints some of whom I am not very sure about. For instance, the one of today. He is said to be better known in the Russian Orthodox Church. Shin, Have I put my foot in it again? I have more or less prepared ahead already unfortunately. I think May 1 will see me change. I need some sugestions please someone? Anyone?

Hesychios of Jerusalem is a confusing one. Not certain myself. These matters aren't as simple as people might wish to make them out to be and have said at times.

There are apparently two Hesychios's that lived around the same time. I see a reference a Catholic Encyclopedia that does not cite the fellow as a saint, but that is not necessarily correct, or incorrect.

I wouldn't rely on American Catholic as they're associated with St. Anthony's Messenger Press which has grave problems.

I'm going to edit the post above briefly to remove the url, there's a 'no url' policy here without approval, don't be concerned about it. Everybody trips it up before reading the announcements, we have a different way of doing things here. Trying to avoid to using troublesome references of mixed quality, even with disclaimers. Cheesy

Odhiambo you are doing a fine job and don't worry, you'll soon find the Catholic saints know how to get through the maze and arrive safely in your posts.  Cheesy

I sometimes double check on other Catholic sites to see if a dubious one gets a mention. If they don't then I leave them aside until further info comes my way.
Like I say, the true ones have a way of making it here even if they've been initially rejected.  Cheesy

Thanks martin!
Will stick to the General Roman Calender.
On those days where no Saints are listed on the General Calender, I will pick one from a proper Catholic resource.

Today we remember
Saint Barachisius and Saint Jonas.
Among many other saints.
 
Saint Barachisius and Saint Jonas( Saint Jonas of Hubaham)
Martyrs.
Jonas and Barachisius were  born at Beth-Asa, Persia
They were brothers and they were also monks living at a monastery in the city of their birth. This was the time when King Sapor (Shapur) of Persia, was persecuting Christians. On, hearing that several Christians had been sentenced to death at Hubaham, the two went there to encourage and to give spiritual support to the condemned. They were arrested .They were then asked to obey the king of Persia, and to worship the sun, the moon, fire, and water. They answered that it was more reasonable to obey the immortal King of heaven and earth than a mortal prince.
Refusing to deny the Faith, they were beaten and tortured.   Jonas was then crushed to death and his body cut to pieces. at Beth-Asa, Persia.
Barachisius, on the other hand, had brimstone and boiling pitch poured  down his throat! Both the brothers were martyred on 24 December 327.
They were canonized Pre-Congregation.

They were canonized Pre-Congregation.

I came across "Pre-Congregation canonization" for the first time while reading about the two martyrs we are remembering today. I googled it just to be sure and this is what I got:

What is pre-congregation canonization?

"In the earlier times, saints were proclaimed to be saints by a local bishop, patriarch etc. and by popular devotion. Pre-congregation is when saints were canonized or declared to be saints, before the long and lengthy process that the Church has today to prove that they were saints, so the exact dates are not available"

Saint Peter Regalado ( 1390-1456)
Also known as Peter Regulatus.
Rranciscan Reformer.


Peter was born at Valladolid, Spain. He was born in a wealthy , pious and noble family. At the age of just 13, he entered the Franciscan Order in his native city. After several years, he transferred to a far more austere monastery at Tribulos, where he became known for his severe ascetism as well as his abilities to levitate and enter into ecstacies.

In 1442 he was appointed head of all the Spanish Franciscans in his reform group. Peter led the friars by his example. A special love of the poor and the sick characterized him. Miraculous stories are told about his charity to the poor. For example, the bread never seemed to run out as long as Peter had hungry people to feed. Throughout most of his life, Peter went hungry; he lived only on bread and water.
For his zeal in adhering to the rules of the community, he was designated “Regulatus”
Peter died on March 31, 1456, and immediately after his death, his grave became a place of pilgrimage. He was canonized in 1746.

His life reads beautifully.  Grin

I also read:

'When his body was exhumed thirty-six years after his death, at the instance of Isabella the Catholic, it was found incorrupt and placed in a more precious tomb. . . In art he is represented with flames bursting from his heart.'

This brings home just how pampered our own teenagers have become.
Who could ever imagine a boy of thirteen being permitted to enter a monastery today.
I could see the parents being arrested and all the monks charged with mental abuse.

St. Peter Regalado pray for our children.

That is true. I find that most of the saints seem to know from very early on what they wanted and they never allow themselves to be distracted. Saint Peter actually wanted to enter the order at 10 years, but I guess he was not allowed.

This helps me to have confidence in God who will always provide.
