Frank or Jerry?

Is Jerome the patron saint of sarcastic bloggers? I don’t think so. He was too grumpy.

I nominate (on the eve of his Feast Day) St Francis…the jongleur de Dieu…the juggler of God, and since he was the Court Jester to the King of Kings, I nominate The Curt Jester as an honorary Franciscan blogger.

Since we are nominating Holy Fools I declare that because I have absolutely no authority whatsover to make this nomination, I therefore have the highest qualification.

A question to provoke some comments: what other saint was an accomplished juggler and acrobat, and staged his own little circus in order to evangelize the local yokels?

    I can’t believe it. I come up with what I think is a cool and obscure piece of saintly trivia and the first guy gets it right.

    I once saw a movie on St. Bosco on EWTN that showed his acrobatic capabilities so it just happened to be a piece of trivia I actually knew.

    you’re probably right doogie. Sarcasm is usually fuelled by bitterness.
