Historical Events in Church Annals for November 18:

Feast of the Dedication of Saints Peter and Paul Basilicas in Rome
  • 942 A.D.
  • Death of Saint Odo of Cluny, second Abbot of Cluny who did much to expand and reform monasticism making several pilgrimages to Rome and to other monasteries and convents in Europe. He was also able to convince secular rulers to relinquish control of the monasteries, turning them back to the Church. He was also influential in mediating between Alberic of Rome and Hugh of Sicily. He died at Tours in France on this date at the age of 64.

  • 1210 A.D.
  • Pope Innocent III, the same pontiff who encouraged Saint Francis of Assisi with his new Order, excommunicated the pesky German Emperor Otto IV for his interference with ecclesiastical matters.

  • 1893 A.D.
  • Pope Leo XIII ushers his 51st encyclical Providentissimus Deus on studying and discerning Sacred Scripture.

  • 1927 A.D.
  • Death of Saint Giuseppe Moscati, a holy physician from Naples who treated the poor at no charge all his life, proclaiming "How can I charge my patients for a gift that Our Lord has given to me free?" If only more doctors and other professions could see it that way! He was canonized by Pope John Paul II in 1987.
