'Tis the feast of Saint Magnus of Milan, Bishop (died circa 530): Saint-link & Wikipedia-link.

Commentary: Wayback Machine.

We also remember Venerable Solanus Casey, Priest, O.F.M. Cap. (1870-1957): Venerable-link ūnus, Venerable-link duo, & Wikipedia-link.

Commentary: When there is no major feast or memorial, Franciscan Media are kind of wild cards. There is no obvious reason to recognize Venerable Solanus Casey on 5 November, but neither am I aware of any reason not to do so; so, today I'll play along.
