Move Over St. Catherine
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?
