Semana XXIV del tiempo ordinario

Día Internacional de la Preservación de la Capa de Ozono

San Cornelio y San Cebrián

 

Memoria obligatoria

Cornelio, siendo papa, fue deportado por el emperador Galio y murió en el exilio (253); Cipriano murió decapitado durante la persecución de Valeriano (258). Ambos lucharon por la unidad de la Iglesia: “Concordes y unánimes, oremos siempre los unos por los otros, y sostengámonos con recíproca caridad en nuestras penas y congojas. Que no cese la oración a la misericordia del Padre por nuestros hermanos y hermanas” (San Cipriano, Carta 60).

Oración colecta

Oh Dios, que has puesto al frente de tu pueblo como abnegados pastores y mártires intrépidos a los santos Cipriano y Cornelio, concédenos, por su intercesión, fortaleza de ánimo y de fe para trabajar con empeño por la unidad de la Iglesia.

CARRYING ALBERT HOME

sinopsis

Big Fish meets The Notebook in this emotionally evocative story about a man, a woman, and an alligator that is a moving tribute to love, from the author of the award-winning memoir Rocket Boys—the basis of the movie October Sky

Elsie Lavender and Homer Hickam (the father of the author) were high school classmates in the West Virginia coalfields, graduating just as the Great Depression began. When Homer asked for her hand, Elsie instead headed to Orlando where she sparked with a dancing actor named Buddy Ebsen (yes, that Buddy Ebsen). But when Buddy headed for New York, Elsie’s dreams of a life with him were crushed and eventually she found herself back in the coalfields, married to Homer.

Unfulfilled as a miner’s wife, Elsie was reminded of her carefree days with Buddy every day because of his unusual wedding gift: an alligator named Albert she raised in the only bathroom in the house. When Albert scared Homer by grabbing his pants, he gave Elsie an ultimatum: “Me or that alligator!” After giving it some thought, Elsie concluded there was only one thing to do: Carry Albert home.

Carrying Albert Home is the funny, sweet, and sometimes tragic tale of a young couple and a special alligator on a crazy 1000-mile adventure. Told with the warmth and down-home charm that made Rocket Boys/October Sky a beloved bestseller, Homer Hickam’s rollicking tale is ultimately a testament to that strange and marvelous emotion we inadequately call love.
