January 22: Feast of S. Vincezo Pallotti...

Everyone knows that for Latin Rite Catholics the liturgical calendar really took a big hit during the late ‘60s. But not everyone knows that the Diocese of Rome conveniently just kept so much of the gold and so has maintainted a much richer liturgical life than the universal rest of us! (But I guess a sure way to escape it is to just follow the Classical Roman Rite!)

Monday in Rome we celebrated the feast of this saint, St. Vincent Pallotti, who is incorrupt and entombed in this Parrocchia Pallottina. He was the fondatore dell’Unione dell’Apostolato Cattolico. This is him as he rests in splendor under the altar mensa in the Roman parish del SS. Salvatore in Onda (Via dei Pettinari, 57 – near Ponte Sisto).
