The Great St Leo


Today's Saint. My ( sort of ) name day.

Leonie-Ann equals St Leo and St Anne, don't you think?

Leo is from the Latin and is related to the name lion.

I blogged about St Leo the Great last year.

Today we read about why St Leo is a Doctor of the Church.

Last year Anthony made me low fat chocolate muffins, in honour of St Leo. No low fat muffins to celebrate today this year - no time, and I'm feeling too fat!
ETA ~ at 11.15 p.m. ~ Jonathon phoned dh. Told him it was the feast of St Leo and told him to get some cheesecake for me to celebrate. So, guess what, I broke my diet. My healthy eating plan.
But weren't they nice??

Hey it works for me to give you "Leo" -- after all, I take ALL the Marian feast days as "my" days!

Lots of partying when your name is Mary ....

Blessings,

Yum, cheesecake...haven't had that in a while. Though I do at least once a week eat an ice cream flavour form Ben & Jerry's called cheesecake brownie. Cheesecake flavoured ice cream with pieces of cheesecake brownie in it. Yum.

Mary - what a great idea - so lucky to have mary as your name! lol!

Greg, that cheesecake ice cream sounds yum, and I'm not even a big ice cream fan...But I must admit I crave margarita ice cream every now and then...

Sounds like a pleasant feast day - although I only just realised this means you have two! :)

What sort of cheesecake was it?

Dad bought two half cheesecakes - one plain, one chocolate chip..
