Happy feast day, San Diego

Today I said the Mass and Office Saint Didacus of Alcalá who is more popularly known as San Diego.

The saintly Franciscan lay brother died in 1463 and was canonised by Pope Sixtus V in 1588. in 1602, Sebastián Vizcaíno claimed the Mission Bay and gave the area the name of San Diego. Happy Feast Day to any readers from San Diego!
