Feast of St. Swithin 15th JulySt. Swithin is an Anglo-Saxon bishop of Winchester who lived in the 9th century. He was famous for his charitable works. According to tradition, on his death bed, he requested to be buried outside where passers-by could walk over his grave and raindrops fall upon it. Nine years later the shrine was built inside Winchester Cathedral for his remains. On 15th July 971 during the ceremony it started to rain and continued for another forty days. It also said if St. Swithin’s feast is fine it will continue for forty days.

You plant seeds every single day, in the world and in others, with every thought you think and word you speak and action you take. You have influence. You’re making a dent in the universe and you matter, in a very real way.

Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant.
