Feast of St Leo the Great...

Listen to Fr Reginald Foster read some of St Leo's sermons.
In Cambridge, the Domincans have a cat of that name.
In other news...
Britain has only eleven WWI veterans left.
There were two prescriptions for an ultra long life on offer yesterday,
both from men who should know.
Bill Stone is 105 and swears by clean living,
a contented mind and trust in the Lord. Henry Allingham, on the other hand,
attributes his 109 years to "cigarettes, whisky and wild, wild women".
Mr Allingham, born on June 6 1896, and Mr Stone, born on Sept 23 1900, are,
together with nine others too frail to travel, the last British men alive known
to have served in the First World War.
