On September 25, Ven. Chiara Luce Badano will be beatified (via Rome Reports):
What a beautiful example of hope and joy in the midst of terrible sickness and suffering – something I think (I hope) our suicide friendly world could greatly benefit from. Find out more about this extraordinary young woman who offered all her suffering to Jesus saying: “I want to share as much as possible the pain of Jesus on the cross.” *sigh* There is so much wasted suffering in the world today.
“If I had to choose between walking or going to heaven, I would choose going to heaven.”
