Lucian’s Florist

“To love beauty is to see light.” – Victor Hugo

I was visiting my friend, Lucian’s florist store on Whitney Ave in Hamden last Thursday before we went out to Sally’s Pizzeria in New Haven (by the way, the Tomato Pie is unbelievable). Lucian shared that years ago he put Jesus in charge of his business. Every day he says, Ok, Boss, what’s the plan today? This season he is including a children’s book corner in which he’ll include lives of the saints. Another example of an apostle at work.
