Saints Luciano and Marciano

October 26 – Saints Luciano and Marciano

“Just think of the world in which we live! Think of the thousands of beautiful things for seeing and the thousands of objects just right for making things. There are the soft shadows of forests at noon, the shade and smells of spring flowers, the different songs and exotic dresses of the birds. How amazing the animals who are around us, the smallest (the ant) even more amazing than the huge bulk of the whale! How grateful should we be for the gentle animals and silent plants that give themselves so that we might have wool and cotton for our clothes.”

City of God, 22.24
