forget me not

I have two sons, Massimiliano (20) and Lorenzo (13) Both celebrate their patron saint's days within a few days of each other and they are both special days in Italy. The 14 th is the eve of the Feast of the Assumption, celebrated as a national holiday here. St. Maximilian's life was one of giving from very early on, and it culminated in his heroic act of martyrdom, the act of total giving of himself for the benefit of another. What a wondrous mystery. And it is especially significant that he died on the eve of the feast of Our Lady, to whom he was totally devoted...a sign of how much she loved him and how moved she was by his dedication to her.
