Today is the Feast of St. Philip of Neri, Apostle of Rome. He was canonized on March 22, 1622, with St. Ignatius Loyola, St. Francis Xavier, St. Teresa of Jesus of Avila, and St. Isidore the Farmer. Someone said that Pope Gregory XV canonized four saints and an Italian.

Fr. Emil Neubert was, arguably, the most extraordinary Marian writer of the twentieth century. St. Maximilian Kolbe was so impressed with one of his books that he struck up a friendship with him. Many people, however, have not heard of him. Here is a good article about him. Fortunately, Fr. Neubert also wrote an autobiography, which you can get here! I have dedicated a Pinterest board to him where you can also get some of his previously untranslated works. I have three more of his works in preparation. He used to write about the Blessed Virgin for three hours a day, and he wrote books for every state of life. His autobiography is very inspiring. It is to be hoped that he will be canonized.
Today is the Feast of Pope St. Pius V, Pope of the Holy Rosary.
