.:{Happy Laurencemas!}:.

St. Lawrence very nearly skipping towards his martyrdom
circa 430AD, Mausoleum of Galla Placidia, Ravenna, Italy

Today in the old breviary, we read:

Levíta Lauréntius * bonum opus operátus est, qui per signum crucis cæcos illuminávit, et thesáuros Ecclésiæ dedit paupéribus.

St. Lawrence's charity is here illuminated by the fact that he gave many lexica and expensive dictionaries to the poor.
