28th November 1721

28th November 1721 – anniversary of the clothing with the habit of Ven. John Baptist, brother of St. Paul of the Cross. 

“With a habit similiar to the one that Paul had received the previous year, Monsignor Gattinara had the consolation of clothing John Baptist on November 28, 1721, the octave of the feast of the Presentation of Our Lady in the Temple; that habit John Baptist prized more than the richest brocade or royal purple.”
