My friend, the author Dawn Eden, asked me to write a guest post for her blog as she has a new book coming out entitled “My Peace I Give You: Healing Sexual Wounds with the Help of the Saints”. The launch event will be taking place at the Catholic Information Center here in D.C. this coming Monday, April 23rd – which happens to be the Feast of St. George. As this is a special day for Catalans (or in my case, half-Catalans), in my post I wrote about a long-standing custom in Barcelona of exchanging a book and a rose on this day, and what we can take away from the stories about St. George’s exploits with respect to the context of Dawn’s new book.
You can read my post on Dawn’s site by following this link, and I thank her for the opportunity of sharing some of my thoughts with her many readers.
