Today is the feast of the great patron saint of lawyers, St. Ives (Rendered also as Yves, Ivo). My son is graduated from law school today, fittingly enough, so here comes one more lawyer upon the world. Just what we need— assuming he follows the pattern of his patron.

Sanctus Yvo, erat Brito, Advocatus et non latro, Res miranda populo.

St. Ives, pray for us!
