Perhaps it was Providence which chose a "Timothy" to write this blog and a "Diana" to write the other one:

From today's Martyrology:

Holy Timothy, the disciple of the blessed Apostle Paul, by whom he was ordained Bishop of Ephesus. After many contendings for Christ, because he rebuked them that were offering sacrifice to Diana, they stoned him, and a short while thereafter he fell asleep in the Lord, (in the year 97.)

Diana of Ephesus
And while I have yet to "fall asleep in the Lord," which is appointed in God's good time, there is no doubt that by not hiding behind a pseudonym I have exposed myself to a constant stoning of another kind. That's okay. Like my patron, I will continue to "rebuke them who offer sacrifice to Diana."
