Quote of the Day


I will remember how St. Peter, at a blast of wind, began to sink because of his lack of faith, and I will do as he did: Call upon Christ and pray to him for help. And then I trust he will place his holy hand on me and in the stormy seas hold me up from drowning.

~  St. Thomas More (Journey With the Saints Calendar)

 

A thank you and a big H/T to Cathy from A Bit of Blarney for this one. I definitely want to find this calendar!


Graphic: This tempera on wood, created by the Catalan painter Lluis Borrassa (born in Gerona, ca. 1360, died in Barcelona, 1425) depicts Peter, a disciple of Jesus, as he walks on water.

The work (St. Peter is Walking on the Water), which Borrassa created between 1411-13, is at Sant Pere (St. Peter's) in Terrassa, Spain.
