Memorial of St. Anselm
Today is the optional memorial of St. Anselm of Canterbury, Bishop and Doctor of the Church. He entered the Benedictine monastery at Bec, France at the age of 27. He was unanimously elected Abbot and later, against his will, he was appointed Archbishop of Canterbury. He is said to be gentle and mild mannered, yet when pressed on moral matters, he did not back down.
St. Anselm of Canterbury, pray for us!
