Today is the feast of St. Thomas More. That makes it the name day of my brother, Thomas More. (And yes, he's a lawyer.)
The first reading is pretty important about Elijah, but not so much about Elijah.... I mean, it is the passage that is recapped in Luke's Gospel, in the announcement Gabriel makes to Zachary about his son, John, whose feast we will celebrate Saturday. "He will go before the Lord...to turn the hearts of fathers to their children..."
And while we're on the topic of feast days, tomorrow is a biggie: the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart! Let's give Jesus a lot of love tomorrow!
