Good Morning! Today is Friday, August 18.

 

Today's National Holiday is: Bad Poetry Day!

Our Saint of the Day is: Louis. He showed early signs of attachment to prayer and to the corporal works of mercy. As a child he used to take food from the castle to feed the poor. When he was 14, Louis and two of his brothers were taken as hostages to the king of Aragon's court as part of a political deal involving Louis's father. At the court, Louis was tutored by Franciscan Friars under whom he make great progress both in his studies and in the spiritual life. Like Saint Francis he developed a special love for those afflicted with leprosy.

 Reminders: There is no school on Monday due to the Solar Eclipse.
