Wine and cheese

Eighty three years ago, some church bells rang out in a Spanish city, and a man had a vision – a vision that cost him blood, sweat, and tears, but has since changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people, including mine.

Vale la pena, as the man would say.  It was worth it.

To mark this anniversary, some friends of mine threw a wine and cheese party.  What could be simpler and more elegant?  Lay out some cheese and fruit, heat up some bread, uncork some good wine – et voilà, an instant celebration.

St. Josemaría, I think, would approve.

Happy Feast Day!
