Happy Saint Valentine’s Day to one and all…just remember the reason everyone is wearing RED today was originally because of a martyred priest who wrote a letter the night before his execution on February 14, signed “from your Valentine.” All that red out there today is a good opportunity for us to remember that true love is always measured by one’s willingness to take up the Cross. Saint Valentine, pray for us, especially for couples to discern God’s will for them and to know how God is calling them to become saints!
And…in case you’re feeling cold this winter…if it’s any consolation, the Pope is cold too – record snowfall has hit Rome THREE TIMES in the last several days!
It’s the first time any snow has fallen in Rome since the 1980′s, and never in living memory has snow hung around for more than a day or two in the Eternal City.
I do have one question though, which anyone who has been to Rome must also be wondering… How do you ride a motorino in the snow???
So stay warm, everyone…Lent is just around the corner…and that means SPRING!!!
Mary, Star of the Third Millennium, pray for us!
