Legend has it these brothers were twins and charitable physicians.
As we celebrate their Feast Day today, we are mindful of the blessings that come our way by having twins in the family. Captain was picking up pucks from under the trash bins and remarking how often they play hockey together in the garage. I try to keep their arguments to a minimum lest they bicker like an old married couple: "Oh, twin?!" --- "What, honey?" (giggle) How appropriate that the Gospel reading today (from Luke 9:46-50) is about the disciples arguing who is the greatest amongst themselves. :-)
