3 August - Saint Lydia

Saint Lydia of Thyatira, a dealer in purple cloth, Saint Paul's first convert, and the first Christian convert in Europe.  Not a bad resume.  As a businesswoman, she is one of my patron saints.

Today would be a good day to celebrate those women, past and present, who have put their lives and livelihoods on the line to start and maintain their own businesses.
