Martinmas (feast of St. Martin) Friday November 11

This Friday the Church honors the great bishop, St. Martin of Tours and his feast day became the thanksgiving and harvest celebration throughout Catholic Europe in centuries past. Families would attend Mass, and spent the day in celebration, and feasting on cooked goose. It has been noted that the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday, instituted by protestants, was to some degree based on this ancient Catholic feast day (more on that in a few weeks).To learn more about this feast day and a mini-Lent that accompanied it, we share these excellent articles posted on OnePeterFive and Fisheaters:
