Influential People

My son has been to Argentina, with his wife, and when he returned he gave me a small statuette of St. Rocco, the Glen Cove saint who is remembered also in France and Argentina.

The saint is known for healing all kinds of diseases, and also for his friendship with a dog, which makes him somewhat unique, though St. Francis befriended a wolf.  People feel at ease with patrons of man’s best friend, and this is one of the assets of St. Rocco, who was not a demanding personality.

To have grown up in the company of the saints is a privilege unappreciated by many.  It certainly expands our contact with influential people.
