I feel the coolness
in the quiet harvest night
and offer thanks

Thank you, Marilena.

Thanks for the Patron Saint!! I'll definitely have to learn more about her. I am traditionally a devotee of "the other Therese". :D

Thanks. I had fun trying out every background I could find!

Dymphna said...

Thanks, Marilena! I must have gone to 10 free background sites and tried everything with a dark red color in it!

Love the poem. Love St Teresa of Avila, but a devotee of Therese too! God bless.

Thanks, Colleen!

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
