Today used to be the feast of my namesake, St. Peter of Verona, now it is observed as the memorial of St. Catherine of Siena. Call me a chauvinist, but the blood of martyrs trumps female mystics - doctors or not. Just kidding - I love them both. St. Peter's feast is now observed on April 28. St. Catherine actually died on April 29, hence the memorial - although St. Peter died on April 6 - go figure?
