Today is the Feast of the dedication of the basilicas of Saints Peter and Paul. It is also the Feast of St. Rose. My sweet mom is named after St. Peter (Petronilla) and her middle name (family nickname) is Rose! She had been my greatest inspiration and example. I am so very grateful for her. I am blessed to attend daily Mass with her and I love her to distraction! Thank you, Jesus, for the gift of my mom!
