Saint Maria Goretti

July 6 is the feast day of one of the most inspirational – and youngest – saints in the history of the Catholic Church: St. Maria Goretti, only 11 years old when she was killed. Father Chris Alar, MIC says her example of forgiveness to her attacker has had  –  and still has –  a profound impact. Then hear the powerful story of Frank Ramirez who also lost a daughter at a young age but believes the way in which she died is the workmanship of an all-good and all-loving God.

Jesus told St.

We don't hear much about the four last things: Death, Judgment, Heaven and Hell. Join Fr. Chris Alar, MIC, in this first of a four-part series as he helps us to understand how to prepare for these things. This episode is about death. Are you afraid of dying? Venerable Fulton Sheen said we’re afraid of dying because we haven’t practiced for it. We also share the incredible story of a woman who experienced the violent death of her young husband and honored him by seeking and living out the message of Divine Mercy and forgiving his killer. Truly an amazing story.
