fran-with-gaudy-sm.jpgRecently I had the opportunity to speak with a group of women about the needs of the Church in Russia.  The women were lovely and truly concerned about the people of Russia.  I was most touched by a delightful woman named Gaudy, (shown with me in the picture) who wanted to take the information to the people of her country so that they could pray for the Russian people and help in some way.  It was a beautiful illustration of the catholicity or universality of the Church.  Please pray for Russia and the people the Church is sending there to help in the reconstruction of the Faith and Culture of that noble country.
