He is one of my patron saint and the patron of this blog...
When the opportunity presents itself for you to stand up for your Faith and for the Lord... ask San Lorenzo's advice.
His decision led him to a horrible death but brought him to eternal salvation!
To die for the faith is a gift to some;
to live the faith is a call for all.
That is the theme of the Beatification Mass of St. Lorenzo and companion martyrs, the first one outside of the Eternal City.
And that is the call for every Christian by virtue of his Baptism and strengthened through his Confirmation.
San Lorenzo, ipanalangin mo ang iyong minamahal na Bayan!
