Saint_Elizabeth_Ann_Seton_(1774_-_1821)

One of the special saints in my life is Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton. She’s so special to me, in fact, that we picked her as my oldest daughter’s patron saint. (Or one of her patrons, anyway.) I love the idea of turning to Saint Elizabeth for mothering tips, and these tips, in particular, speak to […]

A few weeks ago on Facebook, one of my friends shared that he entrusts cancer patients to Blessed Chiara Luce Badano.
