StGertrudeOfNivellesFriday the 13th four days ago was particularly symbolic because of the three cats running around the house two of them are black cats.   I suppose that either means we aren’t superstitious or perhaps it means we are I don’t know.  Either way it was ironic to be sure.

Today, St. Patricks Day, I discovered that there is another commemoration that is not so widely known.   That is the commemoration of St. Gertrude of Nivelles ( AD 600s ).   Among other things this St. Gertrude is the Patron Saint of Cats.
