“Where Are the Saints”

I grew up Roman Catholic.   Saints were a large part of my life, they still are.   I may have strayed from the formalities and rules of religion, but saints are part of me.   They fill my home, they fill my garden, they fill my prayers.

Today is All Saints Day.   Honoring Saints was a way to entwine the pagan deities with  Catholicisms’ revered men and women.   It worked.   Celtic Brigid ~ St. Bridget of Ireland ~ thus two worlds and beliefs entwine,  melding into one.

The footage of nuns running out of an earthquake demolished church sets one to thought…..“Where are the Saints”……….on this November 1st.

I am sure they are here, watching, weeping, for what our world has become………..

My Italian heritage book delves more deeply into the significance of Saints in Italian lives.

If you would like to read more …..visit this link.  I am donating one hundred percent of all my share of profits from sales to the Italian American Earthquake Relief Fund until Christmas.
