...pious Jesus, that I am the reason of Thy way.
Today is the 30th anniversary of the death of Her Serene Highness the Princess Grace Kelly of Monaco, one of the most beautiful and admired women of the 20th century. Sometimes I think that such ladies as Princess Grace, who must take after Our Lady in beauty and piety, are the Lord's greatest gift to us, so holy and queenly and warm in a world which is otherwise so cold and perilous. There are some goodly photos here.
I am the resurrection and the life, saith the Lord: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.
May she rest in peace. Amen.


  1. So is Holy Cross Day to be moved and replaced with her day?

  2. The Indiction, surely. The Elavation of the Holy Cross is nearly a fortnight away yet. :-)

    Nope; you're using an erroneous Kalendar; simple science proves it wrong; Canute would be proud of you.
