Saint Louis of France


Picture source

 I love learning of a saint's virtue or mortification. Example today I learned from Father Tony at Mass this morning: Saint Louis of France: "He had a good sense of humor and enjoyed a joke, but refrained from humor on Fridays out of respect for the Passion of the Lord. He wore a hair shirt under his royal robes. He forbade any kind of profanity or vulgarity, and punished it severely in courtiers. During Advent and Lent, he himself would personally wait on and feed the hungry and indigent". (Diocese of Wichita) Happy Feast Day!
