Pope Francis and the Amazon Synod Decisions, Decisions: over A Quick Trip to Rome ….
Our www.SaintsforSinners.com Testimonials Page is now up! We posted a few letters to get it started and there will be many more added as soon as we can get the cards and letters scanned and figure out a way to put a short commentary about the nice card and notes we get from you.
Our www.SaintsforSinners.com Photographs Page is now up. We will be fine-tuning it too. It has one of our very favorite photos of actress Edie McClurg, the wacky secretary from Matthew Broderick’s “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.”
We love Edie McClurg and ask that you say a prayer for her well being.
We are trying to make a decision about going to Rome for Pope Francis’ Amazon Synod and the Canonization of John Newman. That is why we have Saint Francis of Assisi medals in the photograph below. Saint Francis of Assisi is known as the patron saint of ecology. He often wrote about "Mother Earth" and "Sister Moon" and is a great saint for environmental concerns and social justice issues.
Pope Francis is gathering Catholic Leaders to address environmental concerns in the Amazon. Following his recent writing, “Laudato Si,” (On Care for Our Common Home), the will contemplate social justice as it relates to Climate Change and the Climate Crisis.
We will let those of you who receive the newsletter know if we are able to go to the Canonization. Surely Rome will have great commemorative saint John Newman medals, plus medals for the other saints to be canonized. We’ve got a ticket to the Canonizations already. We just have to find a way to get to Rome. Stay tuned!
Saint Hildegard of Bingen’s Feast Day is this week. She is the 4th female Doctor of the Church! She is nicknamed “Sybil of the Rhine” and was a great prophet, visionary and a composer of music.
Should we go to Rome for the Amazon Synod and canonization of soon to be saint John Newman?
