Our New Saint

This morning in the Clementine Hall, decrees relative to 18 Blesseds and Servants of God were promulgated in the presence of the Holy Father, members of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints and the postulators of the respective causes. Cardinal Jose Saraiva Martins, prefect of the Congregation, read a speech detailing the lives of the future Blesseds and Saints.

Here is the post on the Vatican Website.

Mother Teresa will probably be mentioned in the news. Also the founder of the Pauline Family is listed, Venerable Giacomo Alberione is listed. However, in this community the celebration will be over Blessed Maria de Mattias, Foundress of the Adorers of the Blood of Christ.

Let the Lord Enter

Here is the PBLC Advent reflection for today, December 20. I wrote this one, and if you have been following the reflections for the whole season the answer is yes, they still have mis-spelled my name. This is my favorite of the reflections I wrote for the PBLC this year.

Blessed Advent everyone.
