Today's Mass is celebrated according to the Extraordinary Form that follows the old calender and so we have St Peter of Alcantra as our saint of the day but according to the new calender we have the North American Martyrs but the Gospel reading for St. Peter of Alcantra fits both since it talks about giving up all for the Kingdom of God. St. Peter did this by becoming a Franciscan and living the strict rule of poverty while staying in wealthy Spain. While the North American Martyrs left France and worked in great poverty and hardship and ultimately giving up their lives preaching to the Indians in New France. Ave Maria!
