Our wedding and the liturgical year
Inspired by Kathleen Norris' The Cloister Walk, I wanted to find out if the date of our wedding had any significance in the Christian tradition. And so, with the help of Catholic Culture I found out that it is the feast of St. Thomas Becket, archbishop of Canterbury in 1162. He was a vigorous defender of the church and a "shepherd of souls," which got him exiled to France and eventually martyred.

The 29th is also the proper "5th day of Christmas." I discovered this when I started attending an Anglican church, and learned that the days leading up to Christmas are the season of Advent, whereas the days following the 25th are the days of Christmas. So according to the little song, on our wedding day we shall give to one another 5 golden rings. I think I'd rather have 10 Lords a Leapin', but I won't say no to the rings. Let's hope Mark gets a good job!
