Sant Ildefons, bisbe

 

Memòria obligatòria

Nascut a Toledo (607), va rebre una brillant formació, i essent abat del monestir d’Agalí (Toledo) i bisbe de Toledo (657), esmerçà els seus esforços a acostar la Bíblia i la doctrina de la tradició patrística al poble: ‘Aquell qui es lliura de ple a meditar l’Escriptura, escorcolla la saviesa dels seus predecessors i estudia les profecies, examina les explicacions d’autors famosos i penetra per paràboles complexes el misteri de proverbis i enigmes. Molts lloaran la seva intel·ligència, i la seva fama viurà per generacions’.

Oració col·lecta

Déu totpoderós, que féreu de Sant Ildefons un defensor insigne de la virginitat de Maria, concediu als qui creiem en aquest privilegi de la Mare del vostre Fill de sentir-nos emparats per la seva intercessió poderosa i maternal.

THE BLAZING WORLD

sinopsi

Artist Harriet Burden, consumed by fury at the lack of recognition she has received from the New York art establishment, embarks on an experiment: she hides her identity behind three male fronts who exhibit her work as their own. And yet, even after she has unmasked herself, there are those who refuse to believe she is the woman behind the men. Presented as a collection of texts compiled by a scholar years after Burden's death, the story unfolds through extracts from her notebooks, reviews and articles, as well as testimonies from her children, her lover, a dear friend, and others more distantly connected to her. Each account is different, however, and the mysteries multiply. One thing is clear: Burden's involvement with the last of her 'masks' turned into a dangerous psychological game that ended with the man's bizarre death. This is a polyphonic tour de force from the internationally acclaimed author of What I Loved, an intricately conceived, diabolical puzzle that explores the way prejudice, fame, money and desire influence our perceptions of one another. Emotionally intense, intellectually rigorous, ironic and playful, The Blazing World is as gripping as it is thought-provoking.
