This Sunday, 21 June, is the birthday of Madre Maria Nazarena Majone.
Maria Nazarena, my mother, is a woman of faith, full of zeal and a faithful daughter of our St Annibale.
Reading about her life leads me to knowing her more and to discover her beauty. I love her simplicity, her way of seeing things, in spite of many difficulties, trials and persecutions.
If we have Jesus with us, that is sufficient. The rest will go well.
Yes, her example challenges me because it proves her being constantly in the presence of God. Therefore her heart was on fire, her love and compassion for the orphans and the poor in line with the one of St Annibale. Two hearts burning for the same purpose: to love Jesus and the poor; to pray unceasingly with the harvest’s master to send labourers… and to be one, zealously searching for the last ones and leading them home.
Mother, thanks! Pray for me that I may be like you
