Martyrs of Valencia

We had a great plan to drink Sangria in honor of the blood of the Spanish martyrs, but sadly it didn't come to pass, although we did at least manage to drink a bottle of red wine from Valencia. The martyrs of Valencia were killed by the Communists (the so-called "Republicans") during the Spanish Civil War in the late 1930s - one of those rare wars in which the good guys actually won.

Today is St. Jerome, at least on the calendar in use around here. I suggest a scripture reading with dinner--preferably from the Vulgate. Your menu should include something high in acid.
