Feast of St. Irenaeus

Wednesday was the feast of St. Irenaeus. St. Irenaeus lived a long time ago. He was a student of Polycarp who was a student of the apostle John. There is good article about him and his life at Wikipedia. I’ve written about him a few times. I’ve mentioned a prayer attributed to him several times on this blog. I’m a Secular Franciscan and part of an emerging fraternity at Mt. Irenaeus. We are the St. Irenaeus Fraternity of the Secular Franciscan Order. In October of 2006 we will become a canononically recognized fraternity. Today was the feast day of our fraternity. Peace.
