St Charles of Mount Argus was born John Andrew Houben on December 11, 1821 in the village of Munstergeleen, Holland. Andrew joined the Passionists at Ere, in Belgium.  He was ordained on December 21 1850 and died in Mount Argus on January 5, 1893. His remains were laid to rest in the cemetery adjoining the Monastery and Church at Mount Argus, but were later re-interred inside the Church at Mount Argus where they still rest. Father Charles was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 1988 and on June 3 2007, he was canonised by Pope Benedict XVI. 

Friday is the feast of Epiphany of the Lord. The Feast of the Epiphany of Our Lord Jesus Christ is one of the oldest Christian feasts, though, throughout the centuries, it has celebrated a variety of things. Epiphany comes from a Greek verb meaning "to reveal," and all of the various events celebrated are revelations of Christ to humanity.
