St. Marie-Bernarde Soubirous – Patron Saint of Allergy Sufferers

Good Day to you all!

The official start of Spring may be a few days away still but in my area it is already here.  This is my second spring in OKC and from my experience last spring I knew that the minute I saw the non-fruit-bearing Bradford pear trees my suffering would begin.  Allergy suffering, that is.  I don’t have allergies any longer–four years of shots took care of them–but I do have asthma and it’s never happy when the spring blooms appear.  Besides going to the Doctor and getting the required medicine to survive the spring what else is a person to do?  In my case I turned to Denise, TMC’s columnist for And The Saints Go Marching… and asked her to find me a Patron Saint.  If you’ve ever suffered with lung problems I believe that you will agree with me any and all help is greatly appreciated.  Denise was already writing about St. Laurence O’Toole, a 12th century Irish saint whose heart was stolen just recently but graciously agreed to include another saint.  Enter St. Marie-Bernarde Soubirous. 

From your Faithful Scribe, Linda, and all of us at TMC
