I suppose no blog going by the name of Saint Louis Catholic should fail to note, with gratitude, the feast day of one of the greatest kings in Christendom. The patron of a once glorious city and a once glorious archdiocese.

On this feast day, I also wanted to give public thanks again to the courageous and zealous guardians of the iconic statue of our great saint– The Apotheosis of St. Louis, pictured above– the St. Louis Forever Rosary Coalition. Their courage and perseverance in the last 16 months spared our city the indignity of losing this iconic monument, and spared us the fate of other cities where mobs destroyed at will.

Read the post at Rorate Caeli, which gives details on a procession and rosary this evening.

Happy Feast Day!

St. Louis, pray for us!
