As I mentioned before, we are in the midst of our free month of Netflix and therefore watching excessive amounts of movies and TV shows. I did take time this morning for prayer and I learned something new. The Magnificat has an article each month on a piece of sacred art. This month it is the depiction of Saint Blaise in the Sistine chapel.
You probably knew this, but I didn't: St. Blaise is the Patron Saint of woolworkers because of the instruments used for his torture. Those scary-looking spiky combs are used to comb out wool in preparation for its being spun into yarn. Not something I would want to be tortured with. Now I have a new Patron Saint!
Have a great weekend!
P.S. St. Catherine looks like a swimmer on the 1976 East German Olympic team.
