Liturgical Season: Ordinary Time
A Modern Saint in the Making
“It’s for you, Jesus. If you want it, I want it to”.
Blessed Chiara Bandano
Blessed Chiara Bandano died in October 1990 at the age of 18 from a rare form of cancer. She was named a patroness of World Youth Day 2013 in Rio. She accepted her diagnosis of cancer and placed herself totally in Jesus’ hands. She said, “We only have one life and it’s worth living well”.
Prayer: Jesus, may my life be united to yours in all areas so that I may live life well. Amen.
