St. John who?

Is today the feast day of one of the millions of copycat saints named after St. John? (Sidenote - that would be a pretty cool setup. Think copycat criminals, but instead running around living holy lives. I think maybe we could call them religious orders). Well, no. It's the celebration of the dedication of the mother church of the world, and the Pope's cathedral (no, not St. Peter's), actually called the "Archbasilica of the Most Holy Savior", and named after everyone's two favorite St. Johns. If you're interested, the Wikipedia article is actually decent.

Also, it's far better than St. John the Unfinished, in New York, since it's still unfinished.
