Årets helgener 2017 -- Saints of the Year 2017

     Sig ikke, at Gud ikke har humor! I år har Jennifer Fulwilers helgengenerator givet mig Sankt Paul Miki - nok engang. Altså Uglemor, se så at komme i gang med det der japanske!
     Og den anden helgen?  Sankt Conrad af Piacenza. Ham har vi talt meget om i den forgangne tid. For adskillige år siden var vi på Sicilien med Hvalrossen og de tre største Ugleunger (der var ikke flere den gang), og der løb vi hele tiden ind i sankt Conrad, eller Corrado, som han hedder på de kanter. Det kulminerede med at Uglemor rejste sig lidt hastigt op og bankede hovedet ind i en hylde, der bar en statue af Sankt Conrad - selvfølgelig. Siden fik en af Ugleungerne Conrad som andet navn, og blev - naturligvis - døbt af en italiensk præst, der udtalte navnet "Corrado".

God surely has a sense of humour. Jennifer Fulwiler's  saint generator is a proof of this. As always MotherOwl choose two saints. The second was, once again St. Paul Miki, get on with that Japanese already MotherOwl!.
The first one was St. Conrad of Piacenza. Maybe you never heard of him before, but MotherOwl knows him well. Many years ago, we were in Sicily. MotherOwl, the Writer, the Walrus and the 3 oldest Owlets. The others were not born yet.We "met" Saint Corrado as his Italian name is, all over the place, and MotherOwl hurt herself by getting up from tying a shoelace, banging her head against a statue of ... you guessed it, St. Corrado. One of the smaller Owlets has Conrad as his second name. And of course he was baptized by an Italian priest pronouncing his name "Corrado".


Helgenerne Paul Miki og Conrad Falconieri.
Baggrunden er Etna der blæser en røgring. Det gjorde hun også, da vi var der i 1999.
