    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.

    St. Julia of Corsica

    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


    Julia was captured and sold as a slave to a pagan merchant, but she did not complain or feel sorry for herself. She accepted everything, and performed the most humble tasks with wonderful cheerfulness. For Julia loved God with all her heart. In her spare time, she read holy books and prayed fervently.


    One day her master decided to take her with him to France. On the way, he stopped at an island to go to a pagan festivll. Julia refused to even go near the place where they were celebrating. She did not want to have anything to do with those superstitious ceremonies.


    The governor of that region was very angry with her for not joining in the pagan feast. "Who is that woman who dares to insult our gods?" he cried. Julia's owner answered that she was a Christian. He said, too, that although he had not been able to make her give up her religion, still she was such a good, faithful servant that he would not know what to do without her.


    "I will give you four of my best women slaves for her," offered the governor, but her master refused. "No," he said, "All you own will not buy her. I would willingly lose the most valuable thing in the world rather than lose her."


    When the merchant was asleep, however, the wicked governor tried to make Julia sacrifice to the gods. He promised to have her set free if she would, but she absolutely refused. She said she was as free as she wanted to be as long as she could serve Jesus. Then the pagan ruler, in great anger, had her struck on the face and her hair torn from her head. She was next put on a cross to hang there until she died. Her feast day is May 23rd.

    Profile:Basil Khalil/Director/Oscar Nom/Ave Maria

    in Movies

    Award winning director Basil Khalil was born and raised in Nazareth, to a Palestinian
    father and British mother. After studying for an MA at Screen Academy Scotland, in
    Edinburgh, Basil worked on a number of television productions in London. In 2011 Basil
    was featured by SCREEN International Magazine as one of “top 10 Arab filmmakers to
    watch”.  Quote "In the film I focus on the strict rules and obligations that the nuns and Israeli settlers adhere to, which sometimes border on the absurd, preventing each of these groups from interacting with each other despite living on the same piece of land. However, sometimes due to exceptional circumstances, their two worlds collide, leaving them with no choice but to recognise the absurdity of their strict rules, whether they be political or religious, and ultimately break them. They have to work together to overcome their differences, even if it’s just for a few hours. It is these absurd and unique rules and situations that have always sparked my interest when finding new material, because that is where you find the deep, humane, and extraordinary life stories. The nuns you see in the film live a life of silence under the Israeli military occupation of the West Bank, as well as a life of religious silence and solitude. On the other hand we have the Israeli settlers, who represent one of the reasons behind this military occupation, yet they are also "occupied" by their strong religious beliefs and rules. I wanted to highlight the mutual mistrust that these two groups have for one other, as well as their eventual cooperation and the lessons learned from this adventure, and to show that it is possible for people to put aside their differences in the name of a common goal" You can email your questions to 123filmeasy@gmail.com or follow us on Twitter @123Film

    Blessed Mark of Montegallo

    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


    Blessed Mark of Montegallo was extraordinarily devout already in his youth, and undertook the study of medicine in order to be able to assist the sick poor. He received his doctor’s degree at the University of Bologna.


    At the urgent wish of his father he entered the married state although he would rather have completely severed himself from the world and the things of the world. Not long afterwards his father and mother died. Again the devout longing for the religious state seized him. When he confided the fact to his wife, she told him she was of the same mind, and so both of them yielded to their pious desire, Mark entering the convent of the Friars Minor, and his wife joining the Poor Clares at Ascoli.


    In a very short time Mark displayed all the virtues that are distinctive of a true Friar Minor, so that as soon as he was ordained to the priesthood, his superiors placed him in charge of the community at San Severino. There he set a most extraordinary example in mortification, prayer, and works of charity.

    St. Paulinus of Nola

    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


    St. Paulinus of Nola - Bishop of Nola and writer. Pontius Meropius Anicius Paulinus was born to a wealthy Roman family at Bordeaux, in Gaul. His father was the praetorian prefect of Gaul who made certain that his son received a sound education. Paulinus studied rhetoric and poetry and learned from the famed poet Ausonius. He subsequently became a well known lawyer. He became the prefect of Rome, married a Spanish noble lady, Therasia, and led a luxury filled life. Following the death of his son a week after his birth in 390, Paulinus retreated from the world and came to be baptized a Christian by St. Delphinus in Aquitaine. With Therasia, he gave away their property and vast fortune to the poor and to the Church, and they pursued a life of deep austerity and mortifications. About 393, he was forcibly ordained a priest by the bishop of Barcelona. Soon after, he moved to an estate near the tomb of St. Nola near Naples, Italy There, he and his wife practiced rigorous asceticism and helped to establish a community of monks. To the consternation of his other relatives, he sold all of their estates in Gaul and gave the money to the poor. In 409, he was elected bishop of Nola, serving in this office with great distinction until his death. He was a friend and correspondent of virtually all of the leading figures of his era, including Sts. Augustine, Jerome, Ambrose, Martin of Tours, and Pope Anastasius I. Paulinus was also a gifted poet, earning the distinction of being one of the foremost Christian Latin poets of the Patristic period, an honor he shares with Prudentius. He is the author of a body of extant works including fifty one letters, thirty two poems, and several prose pieces.
