Faithful models of holiness in ordinary life.
It is the end of March and I forgot to write about one of my patrons, Blessed Alberto Marvelli. His birthday was March 21, but I misread the autobiography I have in Italian and I transposed his age at death with the date of his birth - so I was waiting until March 28 to write about him. Naturally, checking his stats, I realized my mistake. Confused? So am I.
However, a very holy young man from these parts, who could be a canonized saint one day, was born in March and also died in March - March 20, 2000. Charles Untz. I was reminded of him while reading The Little Way blog. It appears that devotion to Charles is spreading. (His memorial card shown above.) To learn more about him visit his family's website dedicated to Charles, My Lady's Knight.
Blessed Alberto and Charles, pray for us and with us. Amen.
