Everybody's Got One
A blog. An opinion. An elimination orifice. A dream. An agenda. A past. A hidden talent. A conceptual filter. A cross. A charism (often the same). A task. A wound. A destiny. A lost love. A blind spot. A bad habit. A secret. A passion. A soul ... okay, maybe not everybody ...

There's something passing strange about hearing Bush discuss the Iraqi threat on the anniversary of the battle of Lepanto - like there's more going on than just the 21st century's issues. The centuries are peeking around the corner from backstage as we strut our way across - sometimes, you can hear them rustling around back there.

Side note: the feast was originally celebrated as Our Lady of Victory, until renamed by Pius V. A little too pagan for comfort, that one.
Oddly enough, all the recent Marian feasts have been instituted by a Pius: OLR by Pius V in 1573, IC by Pius IX in 1854, Assumption (and Queenship on the octave) by Pius XII in 1950. Probably meaningless, but odd.
