Today is the feast of Saint Josaphat, a martyr for unity between the Church and the Eastern Orthodox.
Above is his tomb in Saint Peter's in Rome. Fittingly, it is one of the closest altars to Saint Peter's tomb.
I wish to commend Rod Dreher and any others who have left the Church for Eastern Orthodoxy to Saint Josaphat's prayers. It's also fitting that this feast is so near Pope Benedict's meeting with the patriarch in Turkey.
Sancte Josaphat, ora pro nobis.
