St. Gabriel of Our Lady of Sorrows

Although everyone always thinks of my Gabriel's name day as being that of the Holy Archangels, this is the Gabriel for whom he is named. There is an interesting story about him in Ann Ball's Modern Saints. Apparently he was something of a sharp-shooter and single-handedly ran a gang of bandits out of town. My Gabriel likes that, of course.

With it being Lent and all, the celebration of my boy's name day will have to be put off until Sunday.

  1. For some reason, that image reminds me of a cross between St. Aloysius Gonzaga and St. Dominic Savio. Hmmm....
