|Buyer's regret there, Salome? (by Caravaggio)|
Unlike most saints, whose primary feasts fall on their death days, John the Baptist's primary feast is June 24, his birthday. Well, I don't think anyone has any idea what day his birthday falls on, but that's the day that's celebrated. His death day is a secondary feast, which I almost skipped until I learned why the Irish are such a tragic people. Non sequitur? I think not.
