Fr. Groeschel gave my friends and I his blessing, and I asked him to repeat the last line of one of his best stories, the old Jewish grandma whose grandson told her that the Red Sea didn't part for Moses and the Israelites, the water simply went out with the tide. Annoyed, the grandma asked, "you were THERE?!"
Here is the book of shrine of the children who died unborn, opened by our beloved late Cardinal John O'Connor.
The girls are asking their three unborn siblings in Heaven to intercede for their family on Earth.
The sisters looked like so many 'angels among us'. Among them was fellow Long Islander Virginia Sanglimbini, whose brother is in our seminary. A Recent article about the new type of nuns('todays nun has a veil, and a blog!')
in Time Magazine featured Virginia, who was very interested in watching the Sisters of Life play volleyball on the beach on the campus of her college, SUNY at Ft. Schuyler in the Bronx. Her boyfriend quipped, "well, if you're so interested in them, why don't you become a nun?" Virginia answered, "maybe I will".
