Chesterton: Patron Saint of Handgunners CRISIS MAGAZINE - March 23, 2015 ... to put his revolver to use in saving his wife from pirates, despite the fact that he would have done so badly, helps to make him a particularly appealing and appropriate patron. Chesterton, who to the best of my knowledge was never actually involved in a gunfight, knows what it is to be an ordinary, hapless citizen seeking to provide protection for his family. He's not a patron for Hickok and Earp and others who depend on their own amazing skills in a ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/uh_xlXlCNmE/chesterton-patron-saint-handgunners

The Valentine-Shaped Heart ARE WE THERE YET? - February 14, 2015 Though saecular-minded features far out-distance them, I've run across several articles and blog posts reminding us to keep the saint in St. Valentine's Day.

The Holy Cross Brothers took him into the novitiate but soon found out what others had learned – as hard as Alfred (now Brother André) wanted to work, he simply wasn't strong enough. They asked him to leave the order, but André, out of desperation again, appealed to a visiting bishop who promised him that André would stay and take his vows as a Religious Brother.

Matt may have chosen to succumb to instant gratification and sensual pleasures early in his life, but he certainly became a man of humble and authentic austerity in the end of his life.
