Bible Hero and the Birds

March 19 is St. Joseph's Day in honor of the spouse of Mary, the mother of Jesus. This date has been recognized as Joseph's day in some calendars for more than a millenium. This day is also Father's day in Iberia, Belgium and Italy.

March 19 is also the traditional day of the returning of the swallows to the Mission of San Juan Capistrano. They are pretty much on time, never missing by much their awaited return from their winter in Argentina.
