Bl. Maria de Mattias

Her feast day is February 4. She is to be canonized this year, possibly in May.

Here is a description of her life.

Happy Feast day to all the Adorers of the Blood of Christ

Busy, busy, busy, day. Laundry, two meetings, choir rehearsal, grocery shopping, planning for the next four Sundays of Ordinary time, planning for Lent music, now I have to go cook, and then off to rehearsal.

I hear Amy Welborn is shutting down her blog.I had stopped reading her a long time ago, as well as those blogs that just kept focusing on the recent church scandals. I had had enough of it. There is so much good in the Church to focus on. The young people I work with at Calvert House, and these Candidates that I work with here at the House of Formation are enough of a shining light to keep focused on.

The Feast of Blessed Maria de Mattias (soon to be Saint) is tomorrow, February 4th. Stay tuned.
