Res miranda populo

Saint YvesSaint Yves

Today is also the feast of Saint Yves, the patron of barristers, solicitors, and jurists. (Saint Yves is also the patron saint of Mother Yvonne–Aimée de Jésus.) We are mindful today of the kind lawyers who have helped Silverstream Priory with the complicated and often bewildering process of becoming established. All our lawyer friends will be remembered at Holy Mass today.  There is a delightful little jingle about Saint Yves: Sanctus Ivo erat Brito, Advocatus et non latro, Res miranda populo.
