Celebrating Saints and Mystics: Benedict of Nursia

A young man grows tired of the hustle and bustle of urban life so he seeks a place in nature where he can live in quieter fashion.

Flowers for the Blessed Mother

What do you think the following flowers have in common: rose, thistle, violet, marigold, carnation, lily, and forget-me-not? Each one has a legend that associates the flower with the Blessed Mother.
