Is Jerome the patron saint of sarcastic bloggers? I don’t think so. He was too grumpy.

I nominate (on the eve of his Feast Day) St Francis…the jongleur de Dieu…the juggler of God, and since he was the Court Jester to the King of Kings, I nominate The Curt Jester as an honorary Franciscan blogger.

Since we are nominating Holy Fools I declare that because I have absolutely no authority whatsover to make this nomination, I therefore have the highest qualification.

A question to provoke some comments: what other saint was an accomplished juggler and acrobat, and staged his own little circus in order to evangelize the local yokels?
