    One is never too old too learn about St. Tarcisius.
    ; ) Thank you
    Meditations Before Mass (a classic guide to preparing oneself for Mass) by Romano Guardini is very good.
    The beatification process for Romano began in December.

    What a beautiful and inspiring Feast is the Solemnity of the Assumption of Mary!

    And certainly, what an inspiring Feast is Feast Day of St. Tarcisius!
    We should look to Jesus and follow His example like the saints.
