ORME SULLA SABBIA

FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND

One night I had a dream. I dreamed I was walking along the beach with you. Across the sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: one belonging to me, and the other to you. When the last scene of my life flashed before me, I looked back at the footprints in the sand. I noticed that many times along the path of my life there was only one set of footprints. I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in my life. This really bothered me and I questioned you about it: "You said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why when I needed you most you would leave me." And you replied: "My son, my precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."

e non cera rimasto

AND THERE WAS NO ONE LEFT TO SPEAK

When first they came for the criminals,
I did not speak.
When they began to take the Jews,
When they fetched the people who were members of trade unions,
I did not speak.
When they took the Bible students,
Rounded up the homosexual,
Then they gathered up the immigrants and the gypsies,
I did not speak.
Eventually they came for me,
And there was no one left to speak.

FESTA DELLA SALUTE

Every year, the 21 of November Venice celebrates the Madonna della Salute day, one of the most fascinating autumn festivities. This venetian festivity, as the Redentore, is celebrated in memory of a pestilence, which lasted for two years from 1630-31, and the subsequent vow by the Doge to obtain the intercession of the Virgin Mary. Still today every year on the Feast of the Salute Venetians and foreigners alike join in the pilgrimage to the majestic Longhena's basilica, crossing the votive bridge, to give thanks and praise the Virgin Mary to keep them in good health.
