Obscure Saint of the Day: St. Dominic of Silos

Welcome to the Feast of St. Dominic! 

No, not that St. Dominic.

Today, just 5 days shy of the big day, we are celebrating St. Dominic of Silos!

Born around the year 1000 in Spain to a peasant family, St. Dominic became a Benedictine priest who was exiled after an argument over land with the King. 

He's known for having a grave that became a site of pilgrimages for local pregnant women who were having difficulties in their pregnancy, which makes him cool in our book. 

The other St. Dominic, pray for us!
