International Day of Peace, Barnabas the Peacemaker, Saint Francis of Assisi Peace Prayer
It's The International Day of Peace, September 20, 2013! - The official patrons of peace are Saint Barnabas the Apostle, Saint Francis of Assisi, - his Peace Prayer is so popular - and the Infant Jesus of Prague. We will be celebrating by wearing Saint Francis of Assisi and by hearing music in New Orleans' beautiful City Par, only a few minutes away!
We are looking for a new medal: The latest female "Doctor of the Church" - the 4th - Saint Hildegard of Bingen- a mystic and scholar of science and music. Help us if you can! [Update for 2019: We have since found her and she is available!)
Therese of Lisieux, "the Little Flower," Catherine of Siena and Teresa of Avila are the other three female doctors of the Church. However, we are thinking that Pope Francis needs to add Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton to this list of female Doctors of the Church. Seriously, Pope Francis! Can't America have a female Doctor of the Church? Please!
