Sr. Patricia Hughes – The First American Deaf Nun

In this vlog, I am interviewing Sr. Kathleen who is from Philadelphia.  However, here she is not talking about herself but Sr. Patricia Hughes who died more than 100 years ago.  Sr. Patricia was the first deaf nun in the United States!  Enjoy!

St. Francis of Assisi

In honor of our beloved Pope Francis, this vlog talks about the life of St. Francis of Assisi.  He had led an amazing life and died in the early 13th century.  May his life inspire all of us.

St. Andre Bessette

In honor of  Canada, our wonderful neighbor to the north,  Fr. MD wants to tell the story of their beloved native, St. Andre Bessette.  In spite of his limited education, he was a heroic Christian witness living the faith.  He is known especially for helping the poor and praying for people who were very sick.  Enjoy the vlog.

Leonie Martin

Many people believe the Church will one day – hopefully soon – declare that Leonie Martin is a saint.  Who is she? Leonie was the rebellious sister of St. Therese of Lisieux.  May her life inspire us to become holy no matter what kind of past we had.

St. Paul Miki

This Japanese saint was a very courageous martyr.   A martyr is a person willing to die for the faith.  May St. Paul Miki’s example inspire us to cherish and practice our Catholic faith devoutly.
