I remember the time I was updating Nissa’s baby book. There was a part there that asked for the most memorable event coinciding with her birth and I wrote, “Blessed Lorenzo Ruiz”. He was beatified by Pope John Paul II the year before. San Lorenzo Ruiz is our first Filipino saint and it’s his feast day today, my daughter’s birthday.
Happy birthday Nissa, I thank God for giving me a wonderful, smart, loving, responsible and thoughtful daughter. May you always find meaning in all the things that you do. Be happy always.
San Lorenzo Ruiz, please pray for us!
