    The Saturday Morning Motivation With C. Maria (are you a cup or a coaster)

    in Women

    I was in a meeting the other day and noticed the container of coasters.  Suddenly I thought hmm home many of us are cups and others coasters; each has an association with the table they are placed upon. Cups hold the liquids while the coasters protect the table from the spills and / or condensation that comes from the cups thus protecting the table.  Lets look at how this works in life. Lets talke about the cup it hold so much that sometimes it may spill over or lets just say the condensation is the tears we tend to shed.  The table bears the burden of holding the cup, liquids and whatever may spill over on it.  So the table takes on the burden of the cup but who takes on the burden of the table? Who helps to keep the table protected and safe?  This is when those of us who are the coasters come in.  Lets talk about this for a while.

    Blessed Sebastian of Aparico

    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


    Sebastian’s roads and bridges connected many distant places. His final bridge-building was to help men and women recognize their God-given dignity and destiny.


    Sebastian’s parents were Spanish peasants. At the age of 31 he sailed to Mexico, where he began working in the fields. Eventually he built roads to facilitate agricultural trading and other commerce. His 466-mile road from Mexico City to Zacatecas took 10 years to build and required careful negotiations with the indigenous peoples along the way.


    In time Sebastian was a wealthy farmer and rancher. At the age of 60 he entered a virginal marriage. His wife’s motivation may have been a large inheritance; his was to provide a respectable life for a girl without even a modest marriage dowry. When his first wife died, he entered another virginal marriage for the same reason; his second wife also died young.


    At the age of 72 Sebastian distributed his goods among the poor and entered the Franciscans as a brother. Assigned to the large (100-member) friary at Puebla de los Angeles south of Mexico City, Sebastian went out collecting alms for the friars for the next 25 years. His charity to all earned him the nickname "Angel of Mexico."


    Sebastian was beatified in 1787 and is known as a patron of travelers.

    The Saturday Morning Motivation With C. Maria (How Deep Is Your Mud)

    in Women

    I saw a post the other day; a small dog and a larger dog that stepped in the same puzzle.  The smaler dog was covered up to his neck while the larger dog was covered to his lower lets.  The same puddle but the results seemed different yet they are equal.  Never look at your pain in comparison to others then convince yourself your pain is any less.  Once we allow ourselves to believe the results of a hurtful action is not as important as the that of another, we become victims all over again.  Your pain hurts you 100% just as mine hurts me100%. Never be re-victimized or diminished   it will take more effort for the smaller dog to make it through the mud than the larger dog BUT it is still the same MUD.  We need to be mindful of our limitations and strengths.

    Blessed Osanna Andreasi of Mantua

    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


    The daughter of Italian nobles Nicolaus and Agnes, she is reported to have had her first mystical experience at the age of five: a vision of the Trinity, the nine choirs of angels, and Jesus as a child her own age, carrying His Cross.


    Feeling called to the religious life, Osanna rejected an arranged marriage and became a Dominican tertiary at the age of 17; however, she waited 37 years to complete her vows so she could care for her brothers and sisters after the death of her parents. 


    At the age of eighteen she experienced mystical espousal to Jesus -- like St. Catherine of Siena, she had a vision in which Our Blessed Mother made her a bride of Christ, placing a ring on her finger.


    When she was thirty she received the stigmata on her head, then her side, and finally on her feet. In her case, the stigmata do not seem to have bled, but simply to have appeared as red, intensely painful swellings. She kept them hidden from everyone except her servants, but at times the pain in her feet was so great that she was unable to walk. For years also, like St. Catherine, she lived on almost no food at all.


    Her reputation for sanctity spread because of her works of charity and her constant prayer, which sometimes caused her to fall into ecstasy at Mass. Consequently, people begin to visit her for spiritual counsel and report that she sometimes proved a true prophet about their affairs. Osanna assisted the poor and the sick, served as spiritual director to many, and spent much of her family’s considerable fortune to help the unfortunate. 


    Osanna died in 1505 and was beatified on November 24, 1694 by Pope Leo X and Pope Innocent XII.
