August 10: ST. LAWRENCE,
DEACON, AND MARTYR.
Patron Saint of Cooks, Chefs and Comedians. Short bio.
St. Lawrence obeyed the Pope’s instructions and distributed the treasures to the Christians as alms and other important relics for safeguarding, including the Holy Chalice supposedly used by Our Lord during the Last Supper, which he sent to his parents in Huesca, Spain with a letter of inventory through a good Christian. The Holy Chalice is now venerated in the Cathedral of Valencia.
Dear friends, let us thank God for the heroic testimony of St. Lawrence’s faith, love and service for His Church even up to martyrdom. And while we ask God for the same dispositions and for all of us, in particular for our persecuted Christian brethren all over the world, let us not forget that for the majority of us, Christians, the martyrdom which God expects from each one of us is the joyful, hidden and heroic fulfillment of the little things of our ordinary duties of our Christian life for love of God and the good of all souls.
