Please forgive me if you have been checking here and found nothing new for a long while! Laetificat blog has a low level of postings for the last few months, because I’ve been working on another project that has been taking all of my time and energy. The Madison Catholic Herald newspaper interviewed me and other Wisconsin bloggers for a recent article, “Catholic bloggers: a new kind of missionary” which you may be interested in if you have not seen it. The journalist did a fine job.
I intend to “go live” with the major New Evangelization project I have been working on, tomorrow, the feast day of Saint Francis of Assisi. The URL for the new project is FatherMazzuchelliSociety.org. As I post this, it is still hidden behind a password, and that will get removed tomorrow.
I ask prayers right now for mercy, charity, the unity of the Holy Catholic Church and the return of Catholics who have left the Faith to be the fruits of the Father Mazzuchelli Society and its initiatives. It is God Himself who can bring this about, and we His children need to respond with ever greater fidelity to His grace.
Very cool! Will be praying for you!Permalink
I checked out your new website, and… I was so impressed, Elizabeth! I had no idea of this history and I grew up in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, with my family from central Wisconsin. May the Lord’s grace be with you on this endeavor.Permalink
I’ve recently received your book on the Sinsinawa order and wanted to thank you for the wonderful work you did on it.
Turmoil in the religious and the Church in general, is something I’ve been following for some time as part of the work of my apostolate and your work on the very specific changes occurring within one order is a detailed look, that too often gets glossed over in the more macro oriented works I’ve been reading—both the Sisters in Crisis books by Ann Carey, and several others on feminism and Wicca within religious orders of the Church, etc.—and your work is very much appreciated.
Take care, and God Bless you and your apostolate.
P.S. I lived in Madison for a year many years ago and enjoyed it very much, except for the snow and ice, none of which are around in my hometown of Sacramento, California.
