New Blog: Making Things Visible

Please go over and take a look at a new local blog, Making Things Visible. The authors are friends of mine, and many of us have been encouraging them to move from Caringbridge to a more common blog venue. And all I can say is....FINALLY and WELCOME!

From the "About" page:

“Our task is to make the truth visible and lovable in ourselves, offering ourselves as an attractive and, if possible, heroic example. The person who needs to touch and to feel in order to believe will not be easily won with words. Talk alone does not attract, but ‘making things visible’ does.” St. Gianna Molla

This blog is an offshoot of a site which was started during my daughter’s illness and subsequent death in the summer of 2008. It began as just a way to keep family and friends up to date on her progress, but after her death became the forum for many different reflections on the meaning of death, love and suffering- in light of the Cross of Christ. After being told from many that these entries were “inspirational”, I decided to branch out to a blog to give God an opportunity to reach a wider audience if He so chooses.

I am a wife, mom, grad student in theology, parish youth minister and most importantly, baptized Catholic. I am striving for holiness and some semblance of order in life.

I hope that you will all go over and give them a big welcome. All of us who know the authors and their story have been very touched by their suffering and their words of wisdom. Please also visit their Caringbridge site and read through Gianna's story.
