From her earliest moments, Angela dedicated herself to fasting, self-sacrifice and prayer; practices she maintained throughout her life. Angela was born in the town of Desenzano del Garda in Lombardy, Italy, the second child of a pious middle class family. At 15, her parents died, leaving her and her older sister orphans.

Jesus - Are You the One????? FATHER JIM CHERN'S BLOG - December 11, 2016 ... praying with this Gospel reading, the realization of how no one is immune to the harshness of life – seemed to hit home even harder. Particularly with this Gospel we just heard this story about John the Baptist. Because listen to that line that John asks of Jesus - Are you the one who is to come or should we look for another? That's kind of a big deal because we have to remember a few things about John the Baptist: First of all - John the Baptist and Jesus were cousins. Remember when ...http://chernjam.blogspot.com/2016/12/jesus-are-you-one.html

I long for the luxury of waiting, of having time to sit and watch, to take long stretches for prayer. But the Advent I dream of is not the Advent I have. So I take heart in theologian and Jesuit Father Walter Burghardt's encouragement to be aware of what is right before us: "This very moment, for all its imperfection and frustration, is pregnant with possibilities, pregnant ...http://quantumtheology.blogspot.com/2016/12/column-advent-1-this-very-moment.html
Advent Is IMPERATIVE! HOMILIES AND OCCASIONAL THOUGHTS - November 27, 2016 If the parish ever runs short of money and I need to moonlight, I have a perfect job waiting for me: teaching grammar. It seems almost everyone I know under forty has forgotten the basic rules of English grammar. Just about every day I hear someone say "her and me went down to McDonalds." On the radio this week I heard "Less people attended the rally this year." Come on! Less rain, maybe, but fewer people. Some of our younger parishioners consider me a badge-carrying member ...http://gregorynsmith.blogspot.com/2016/11/advent-is-imperative.html
