Uncle Eddy's E-mails -- January 22
Saint Vincent of Saragossa, (northern Spain)
(entered heaven in 304)
I only have a few precious minutes to write (another series of interrogations begins today – they think they found some new "evidence" against me, which is hardly likely, since I have done nothing they accuse of me… the farce plays on…), but I wanted to respond to your last right away. Nothing doing about putting back your efforts in the face of opposition and hardship! My dearest of nieces, Christians THRIVE under difficulties – both individually and as groups. You are a senior, you have only a few more months there on campus, for the sake of the future students, don´t let up on your efforts, don´t waste the little time that remains to you! Take a cue from today´s saint.
The more he suffered, the more heroically he bore witness. Make him your special patron for your remaining time at school, my beloved niece, and you won´t regret it (neither will your fellow Catholics there, who desperately need your faith-filled example and leadership). Gotta go.
Ciao. Uncle Eddy.
