A certain someone baked Madeleines again today... This time she made "Bacon and Chocolate" to celebrate her bacon-loving older brother's nameday! Happy Feast of St. James!
O glorious Apostle, Saint James, who by reason of thy fervent and generous heart was chosen by Jesus to be witness of His glory on Mount Tabor, and of His agony in Gethsemane; thou, whose very name is a symbol of warfare and victory: obtain for us strength and consolation in the unending warfare of this life, that, having constantly and generously followed Jesus, we may be victors in the strife and deserve to receive the victor's crown in heaven. Amen.
St. James the Greater, Ora Pro Nobis!
