Cultural Cocktail Hour heads to Umbria


Cultural Cocktail Hour heads this summer to Umbria, which is known as Il cuore verde d’Italia‘, “The Green Heart of Italy.”

Check back in September for photography from Umbria, including the Cathedral of Saint Francis of Assisi, seen in the photo at the left.

In the meantime, please enjoy this excerpt of a prayer attributed to Saint Francis.

“Make me an instrument of your peace

Where there is hatred, let me sow love

Where there is injury, pardon;

Where there is doubt, faith;

Where there is despair, hope;

Where there is darkness, light;

Where there is sadness, joy.”

Similarly, Cultural Cocktail Hour believes that the highest goal of art and culture is to

illuminate,

inspire

create joy, and

forge human understanding. 

Wishing my readers a glorious summer!
