St Malachy

Today is the feast day of the saint after whom this blog is named - Malachy. So, from the archives of this blog:

St Malachy, who was he?

Malachy died on 2 November 1148 but his feast day is kept on 3 November to avoid a clash with All Souls Day.

As an aside, it's also the feast day of St Martin de Porres
