Sicilians' Big Day

March 12, 1997

St. Joseph's Day, a week from today, is a special holiday for Catholics, especially those from Sicily. As Italian cookbook author Vincent Schiavelli explained: "To the Sicilian people, St. Joseph's profound commitment to his familial responsibility and his quiet courage in the face of great adversity have made him the exemplar of one of the traditional Sicilian ideals of manhood, omu di panza, a "man of stomach"--a man who can stomach the misery of life and has the guts to do the right thing."
