Thanks, Honey!

The story of Maria Esperanza Medrano de Biachini is quite fascinating and I highly recommend everyone, Catholic or not, read it.

In short, it is the true story of a modern-day woman from Venezuela who seems to be a mystic in the truest sense of the word. The movement for her canonization began this January, and I will be very interested in seeing what happens. She was a wife, mother, and grandmother who lived to spread God's love throughout the world. In the course of her life, many amazing things happened to her, including having apparitions of the Blessed Virgin and St. Padre Pio, and during one of these her face transfigured into the face of Padre Pio while her husband watched!

My husband and I were discussing her life and marveling at how God seemed to use her for His purpose by granting her very special and powerful gifts. I commented on how amazing her family must be and how wonderful it would be to say she was your grandmother, wife, etc. Then, referring to the episode when her face transfigured into the face of Padre Pio, I said, "Can you imagine witnessing that? Being her husband, and watching your wife's face do that? Can you imagine being married to someone so holy?"

My husband simply replied, "No.".
