Barcelona. November, 2012

Within a small chapel inside Barcelona’s cathedral...Saint Rita, patroness of bakers, behind bars. Her legend, sort of, is that she was the bread baker for a despotic ruler, probably Roman. When she put the loaves into the oven and knelt for prayers, she became so devotionally involved, lost in prayer for hours, that the loaves had surely overbaked, burned, and she would consequently be put to death. But wait, it seems that angels had removed the bread and all (including Rita) was miraculously saved.
