Happy St Brendan's Day !

Today is the Feast of St Brendan the Navigator :-)

May 16th
Troparion (Tone 4)
The Divine Likeness has been perfected in thee, O holy Father Brendan, for taking up the Cross thou hast followed Christ, and by thy deeds thou hast taught us to disdain the flesh for it passes away, but to cultivate the soul for it is immortal: wherefore, O holy father, thy spirit rejoices with the Angels.

Holy Father Brendan pray for us !

Holy St. Brendan, Pray to God for us.

I read and enjoyed a Hagiography of his on Saturday.
