…which I suppose means little or nothing to anybody but me!
But today is the feast day of my patron saint, whose biography can be found here. (I’m younger and handsomer than the picture, though – something I get to say very seldom, so I’m taking the chance to now! ;))
My favorite quote from him is from his account of St. John (the guy who wrote the Gospel and three Epistles) on his (John’s) deathbed – when asked for one last piece of wisdom for those who counted him their teacher to treasure, he responded, “Little children, love one another.” Polycarp told that story repeatedly, and it’s been handed down ever since.
My second favorite is from his Epistle to the Philippians (link is to J.B. Lightfoot’s accurate but King-James-ish translation): “He who has love is far from all sin.”
