Project BLACK MAMBA: Lent—Long Road Back, Part IV

Monday, 27 March was the festival of Blessed Frowin of Engelberg, Abbot, O.S.B. (died 1178): Blessed-link & Wikipedia-link.

'Twas also the festival of Blessed Francesco Faà di Bruno, Priest (1825-1888), founder of the Minim Sisters of Saint Zita: Blessed-link & Wikipedia-link; Wikipedia-link Sisters (Italian).

Commentary: Wayback Machine. A noted mathematician before he took Holy Orders, Bl. Francesco is known in the secular world for Faà di Bruno's formula, which I won't even pretend to understand: Wikipedia-link Formula.

Scripture of that Day
Mass Readings
The Book of Isaiah, chapter sixty-five, verses seventeen thru twenty-one;
Psalm Thirty, verses two, five & six, eleven & twelve(a), & thirteen(b);
The Gospel according to John, chapter four, verses forty-three thru fifty-four.

Commentary: Lenten Gospel reflections: Word on Fire & Franciscan Media.
