Whos Feast day was it yesterday- Aug 2???

  • Hi everyone,  I have to work on Sundays unfortunatly so I try to attend weekday masses as often as possible. Yesterday I went a beautiful High mass at my usual parish. I saw it was the Feast day of St.Alphonsus de Ligouri, so I put the ribbons in my missal on the correct pages for this mass and began to assist with the mass. When the priest went to the pulpit to start the readings he announced this was the feast of  St. Louis De Montfort and preached his sermon about him. I became confused about this, when I checked my liturgical calendar it lists St. Louis de Montofort feast day for April 28. I'm wondering if the priest confused the two saints or if he's going by some European  custom that allows you to switch around saint feat days around?? I thought maybe someone here with here with more knowledge of the liturgical calender can enlighten me to what happened.

    Thank you and God Bless
    Jim

  • I have looked at several liturgical calendars and I cacn find no concievable way that it was the feast of St Louis Marie de Montford. That priest must have been mistaken.

  • This is what Catholic World News says about August 2;
      Born in La Mure, France, Saint Peter became a parish priest in 1834 and joined the Marists five years later. He fostered Eucharistic adoration throughout his life and founded a religious order of priest-adorers of the Holy Eucharist who came to be known as the Priests of the Blessed Sacrament.

    St. Eusebius was a Roman priest of the fourth century. According to the acts relating his martyrdom he was condemned by Constantius, the Arian Emperor, to be starved to death in a room in his own house. He was buried in the cemetery of St. Calixtus. His cult has always enjoyed special favor in Rome and his house was transformed into a church.

    According to the 1962 Missal of Bl. John XXIII the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, today is the feast of St. Alphonsus de Liguori. His feast in the Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite is now celebrated on August 1. It is also the commemoration of St. Stephen I, a Roman, who ruled the Church from 254 to 257 during the reign of the Emperor Valerian. He is famous for his correspondence with St. Cyprian about the validity of baptism administered by heretics. The pope's martyrdom was the beginning of Valerian's persecution.

    Historically today is the feast of Our Lady of the Angels.

  • On the old calendars, August 2 is the Feast of Saint Alphonsus Ligouri. This was before the changes that were made in the "extraordinary form" or.. "The Missal of John XXIII."
    Matthew 5:37

    But let your speech be yea, yea: no, no: and that which is over and above these, is of evil.

    My Avatar is Fr. Hector Bolduc. He was a faithful parish priest in De Pere, WI,
