All Saints Day

St. VictoriaNovember 1st is All Saints Day so I’m honoring my patron saint, St. Victoria of Tivoli (a town near Rome.) According to the Catholic dot org webpage I accessed today, there are several juicy stories about St. Victoria and her sister Anatolia, refusing the advances of soldiers and upright men; however, the web authors cannot confirm the stories as true. But the two siblings did actually live and were known for their holy lives as converts to Christianity–which is inspiring enough for me. Her feast day is Dec.23.
