Feast of the Emperor St Henry II


I've been reminded that today is the feast (in the 1962 calendar) of St Henry, 6 May 973 – 13 July 1024, and Holy Roman Emperor from 1014.  St Henry is, among other things, patron of Benedictine Oblates, and you can read a nice piece on him over at Vultus Christi.


And a happy name day to all those named in his honour (and one of my friends in particular, as his saint must clearly influenced me in posting the piece on the Summa earlier in honour of the day...!).
