“Its funny you mention St. Polycarp, since today was his feast day on the pre-Vatican II sanctoral calendar. :-)”

(Christ is Risen, and you, o death, are annihilated!)
I went to a Tridentine Low Mass at a nearby parish offered by Fr. Scalia, yes, the son of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, and he read a bit about the martyrdom of St. Polycarp.
Interestingly enough, the only Catholic parish named for St. Polycarp is in my home state of Delaware, in a town named Smyrna. ;-) I went there once. The pastor is a nice conservative priest.
