Tuesday, April 5

The plot thickens...

I think by now we've pretty much realized that the date of the Pope's death was:
1) On a first Saturday, which are specially dedicated to Mary,
2) On the Vigil of Divine Mercy Sunday, a feast he created,
3) Within the Octave of Easter,
4) In a New Springtime (only 12 days old), and
5) In the Year of the Eucharist

But I just found out that the first day out of the mourning period, April 11, is the feast of St. Stanislas, patron of his beloved Poland, whose name he had considered taking as Pope.
