Good day. Welcome to Catholic Saints Info. I’m the amateur hagiographer, and this episode I’m going to do a terrible imitation of Pope Benedict XVI. On the 16th of February 2011, during his Wednesday general audience, Pope Benedict spoke about the life and work of Saint John of the Cross. This is an English translation of that catechesis.

Good day. Welcome to Catholic Saints Information. I'm the amateur hagiographer, and this episode I'm gonna tell you about Rogation Days and Ember Days. They're different devotions, but kinda related because they refer back to a time when nearly everyone was a farmer.

Good day. Welcome to Catholic Saints Information. I'm the amateur hagiographer, and this episode I'm going to do a lousy impression of Father John Henry Stapleton by reading the essay "Believing and Doing", which makes up chapter one of his book "Moral Briefs". It sets the stage for the other teachings about Catholic morals, and is a good starting place to consider morals from any perspective.
