ST. THERESA OF AVILA.

Today we remember one of the greatest women in our Catholic Tradition. She was born in 1515 and still is teaching us how to advance in spiritual life. Pope Francis lately said that the Church has to give more space and responsibility to women and St. Theresa is surely a clear example of leadership in our church. Imagine that she was able to reform the CARMELITES, both men and women of her time; so today we have a great order of the Carmelite, which are giving so much ot our Church. https://www.artble.com/artists/gian_lorenzo_bernini/sculpture/the_ecstasy_of_saint_theresa

BLESSED FRANCO ACUTIS.

A young man of 15 years of age was beatified last Saturday in ASSISI. This boy has taken the world by surprise. Born in a nonpracticing family, he was a web master genius, who build with his own computer his own web page at 12; he was madly in love with the Holy Eucharist to the point that he started collecting all the Eucharistic Miracles; went to mass every day (even though his parents did not believe); he liked sports and nature; very well accepted by his friends and every day he used to bring food to the poor.

    He died in 2006 and his body was found INCORRUPTED with the same smile of when he died. THE CHURCH and the whole WORLD was taken by surprise; he is now an inspiration for so many children in the whole world.

PLEASE GET TO KNOW HIM; here below you have many videos; take your time and enjoy.
