Mar. 23 Monday of the Fourth Week of Lent; Optional Memorial of St. Turibio de Mogrovejo, bishop, Opt. Mem.

St Toribio, or Turibius Alphonsus Mogrobejo, a Spaniard, served God from his infancy. Appointed Archbishop of Lima, he landed in South America in 1581. He died March 23, 1606, having, by his indefatigable zeal and by the boundlessness of his charity, literally renewed the face of the Church of Peru. His feast in the 1962 calendar of the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite is celebrated on April 27.
