St. Josaphat Basilica




I found on a Roman Calendar that today, Nov. 12, is the Feast Day of St. Josaphat. Knowing that the basilica in Milwaukee is in his name but not knowing who he was my historical instincts got the best of me. It turns out that St. Josaphat (1580-1623) was a bishop of the Eastern Rite who sought unity between the Orthodox and Catholic Churches.
