SaintCast Episode #43, 1st Anniversary, podcaster feedback, run on JPII relics, Lenten station churches, feedback 312.235.2278

Can you believe it's been a year since the first SaintCast on St. Padre Pio of Pietrelcina?  Many saints, soundseeing tours, and interviews later, we're still telling the wonders of the saints.  After all, there are thousands!  Tune in today to hear feedback from my favorite podcasters.

Learn about the Saints of this week in the Roman calendar, and the practice that Pope Benedict is reviving in Rome -- the Lenten Station Churches.  Did the SaintCast contribute to the run on JPII relics?  The cause for canonization is financially strapped because of postage to send out all the 2nd class relics.

SaintCast Episode #42, St. David of Wales, wearing leeks, Patron of oversleeping, eyes and the soul, feedback 312.235.2278

A very happy and blessed St. David's Day to all! Yes, today is the Feast of St. David of Wales, and many in Wales will be wearing daffodils and leeks. Yes, I said Leeks. Paul took a leek yesterday in the grocery store, and wore it in his scrubs today (See photo below). It was quite an unusual scent, requiring a lot of cologne to mask the odor. Find out why Welsh wear leeks today, in honor of this special Saint. We learn of his holy life, and a special reading from that Shakespearian thespian, Sir Giles of Valladolid. In today's St. Jeopardy we discover the patron saint of oversleeping, and discuss more on the Seat of the Soul, including new research that indicates that the eyes are the mirror to the soul.
