    St. John of Sahagon

    in Religion

    Rebroadcast of the long running radio program, "The Ave Maria Hour", a presentation of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement. www.AtonementFriars.org


    John Gonzales de Castrillo was born at Sahagun, Leon Spain. He was educated by the Benedictine monks of Fagondez monastery there and when twenty, received a canonry from the bishop of Burgos, though he already had several benefices. He was ordained in 1445; concerned about the evil of pluralism, he resigned all his benefices except that of St. Agatha in Burgos. He spent the next four years studying at the University of Salamanca and then began to preach. In the next decade he achieved a great reputation as a preacher and spiritual director, but after recovering after a serious operation, became an Augustinian friar in 1463 and was professed the following year. He served as master of novices, definitor, prior at Salamanca, experienced visions, was famous for his miracles, and had the gift of reading men's souls. He denounced evil in high places and several attempts were made on his life. He died at Sahagun on June 11, reportedly poisoned by the mistress of a man he had convinced to leave her. He was canonized in 1690 as St. John of Sahagun.

    IndieReview Behind The Scenes with Author William Turner (Maverick Moments)

    in Entertainment

    ~~Hello Everyone! My name is Michelle Cornwell Jordan, I am your host! 


    ~~The definition of Maverick is an unorthodox or independent-minded person.


    Also called a TrailBlazer! I have the pleasure of chatting with one of these "Thinking Outside The Box Artists"  tonight  Author William Turner.


    William Turner  spent his formative years in New England. He was educated in the private, parochial school system, and is presently retired from State service (State of California), as a supervisor. He has one son (Ontonio), and three grandchildren. His grandson is serving in the United States Air Force. His daughter-in-law, Bridgette, is a practicing pediatrician. William had aspired–so long ago–to be a priest, but felt at the time he had not been exposed enough to life to walk away and close the monastery door. His subsequent exposure to life sullied him beyond any aspiration to the priesthood. William now lives in Lancaster, California, spending much of his time doing penance, reflecting on his countless errors in judgment. William’s penchant for writing mysteries stems from his exposure to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories and those of Agatha Christie. His mentor was Sister Agnes Bernard–his high school English teacher.

    Deepertruth Tuesday Our Lady of Quadalupe and the St. Lucy Story (8:00 Central)

    in Religion

    Tuesdays are basically open nights for interviews, topics of interest, and featured articles from the Deepertruthblog.  Each week this will be an opportunity for Deepertruth to promote upcoming events such as Ross and Margie of Roaming Romans.  They will have the mike from time to time as they prepare for their Jerusalem and Rome trips.  


    It was the fall of 1978 that I began to rediscover perhaps for the first time the importance of my Catholic Faith. The story of St. Lucyintrigued me greatly because of her courage.


    St. Lucy lived in the early 4th century during a massive persecution of the Catholic Church. She was a very beautiful young woman whom I wondered how she would have lived in our time.


    As a young beautiful woman, many men wanted to take her hand in marriage and her Mother wanted to arrange a wedding for St. Lucy. That never materialized because of St. Lucy’s love and commitment to Jesus Christ. She wanted to be one of Our Lady’s maids who are presented before the King (Psalms 45:15).


    St. Lucy dedicated her life solely to the Lord. She would pray at the tomb of St. Agatha and through her intercession, her Mother was cured of a long illness miraculously.


    This led to her Mother’s conversion to Christ, but that did not stop the suitors seeking St. Lucy’s hand in marriage.
