Bonfire For Our Lady
Partying with the Tipi Loschi at Santa Lucia, their clubhouse on a hill overlooking San Benedetto del Tronto, and the Adriatic Sea. Marco Sermarini writes:
Tonight’s the night when Holy House of Our Lady was brought flying by angels to Loreto. All the hobbits are in Santa Lucia to make a big fire to warm the air in honor of Our Beloved Lady of Loreto. It lasts since centuries – the Holy House came to Loreto at the end of XIII Century It’s a tradition of my town and my region, praying the Holy Rosary, singing and eating a sort of good pancake.
Sounds like the Benedict Option is going quite nicely in San Benedetto del Tronto. This is what I mean when I say the Tipi Loschi have the Ben Op worked out well: they fast and they feast, and they celebrate with bonfires and pancakes and prayers.
