Today is the feast day of saint Lucy. To celebrate this glorious martyr and to give thanks to the swedes for letting us steal their idea, I would like to show you all this video.

The danish tradition is a little different but I couldnøt find any good videos  :)

Do not be cast down over the struggle - the Lord loves a brave warrior. The Lord loves the soul that is valiant.

Even if we have thousands of acts of great virtue to our credit, our confidence in being heard must be based on God's mercy and His love for men. Even if we stand at the very summit of virtue, it is by mercy that we shall be saved.
