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.
