I live in a house with four women: my Queen and my three little princesses. It’s an estrogen factory; a kingdom of all things pink. When I say it’s pink I don’t mean it figuratively, it’s literal. I wake and sleep inside a Disney princess’ dream… it’s so pink that it looks like a Pepto Bismol factory exploded. Pink isn’t just in my house – everywhere you look in October, pink’s popping up.
As many of you are aware, October in America is “Breast Cancer Awareness” month. One of the great gifts we have as Catholics is a deeper understanding of the Communion of Saints, and the power of intercessory prayer. The saints and martyrs lived heroically virtuous lives. One such model of heroism and virtue is St. Agatha, who also happens to be the patron saint against breast cancer and breast disease.
