Saint Paul of the Cross

Today in North America, we celebrate the feast of Saint Paul of the Cross who was transferred to today because we celebrated the feast of the first North American Martyrs yesterday.

I just wanted to share this picture of the tomb of Saint Paul of the Cross which I took back in 2005 on my most recent visit to Rome. He is in a side chapel in the Basilica of Saints John and Paul (they are mentioned in the Roman Canon). It is not quite as well known of a basilica since it is tucked away down a sidestreet sort of catecorner to the Circus Maximus.

It really is a diamond in he rough since there are remains of many Saints in that church, and it has some beautiful paintings and decor as well.

Sante Paule a Cruce, ora pro nobis.
