Feast of St. Lawrence

St. Lawrence was tied on top of an iron grill over a slow fire that roasted his flesh little by little.  He was so filled with the love of God that he almost did not feel the flames.Then he joked. "Turn me over, I'm done on this side!"  Just before he died, he said, "It's cooked enough now." Then he prayed that Rome would be converted the Faith might spread all over the world.
