"Você é tão errado e cheio de estragos. E me peguei olhando pra tudo isso e amando tanto, tanto, tanto. Como se nada mais no mundo fosse tão bonito ou correto, ou mesmo perfeito, porque perfeito é o que não tem mesmo cabimento."

Reliquary busts like this one for St. Benedict contained remnants of saints’ bodies. According to tradition, St. Benedict died on this day in the mid 6th century. As a result, his feast was celebrated on this day until the institution of the General Roman Calendar which moved his celebration to 11 July to prevent conflict with Lent.
