From Africa Germany

This is where living the liturgical year takes us. On geographical trips. And culinary detours.

Wednesday ~ African Curry. St Charles Lwanga and companions.

Today ~ St Boniface... Benedictine monk, born in England. He was consecrated the first bishop of Germany after only four years of preaching there. He organized the Church in this area. He was martyred while preaching among the Frisians.

Thinking of British food as the saint was borm in England about 547 - hey, why not eggs and chips? See British Food and Culture.

Lord,Your martyr Boniface spread the faith by his teachingand witnessed to it with his blood.By the help of his prayerskeep us loyal to our faith and give us courage to profess it in our lives.Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit,one God, for ever and ever. +Amen.
