Project BLACK MAMBA: Lent

'Tis the Optional Memorial of Saint Vincent Ferrer, Priest, O.P. (1350-1419), the "Angel of the Last Judgment:" Saint-link ūnus, Saint-link duo, & Wikipedia-link.

Commentary: Wayback Machine. Quoth the Holy Redeemer bulletin:
He was a Valencian Dominican friar, who gained acclaim as a missionary & a logician. For twenty-one years he was said to have traveled to England, Scotland, Ireland, Aragon, Castile, France, Switzerland, & Italy, preaching the Gospel & converting many. Many biographers believe that he could speak only Valencian, but was endowed with the gift of tongues.
'Tis also the festival of Saint Maria Crescentia Höß, Virgin, T.O.R. (1682-1744, also spelt Höss or Hoess): Saint-link ūna, Saint-link duae, & Wikipedia-link.

Commentary: Wayback Machine. We here at BLACK MAMBA H.Q. had previously recognized St. Maria's liturgical feast as being on 6 April, but are now convinced 5 April is the better date.

'Tis also the festival of Blessed Mariano de la Mata Aparício, Priest, O.S.A. (1905-1983): Blessed-link & Wikipedia-link.
