Yesterday, April 19, Erin, Lorraine, and faithful friend Tony Pacilio travelled to Dunwoodie Seminary in Yonkers, NY, home of the EWTN Studio for Fr. Benedict Groeschel's Sunday Night Prime television show. We were there to share about Fr. Carl Schulte's book The Life of Sr. Marie deMandat-Grancey and Mary's House in Ephesus, the status of the Cause for Sr. Marie, and the work of the Sr. Marie Foundation. We were especially pleased to be able to thank Fr. Groeschel for his support of the Cause and our work in the Sr. Marie Foundation, but mostly we were happy to thank him in a special way for having written the most wonderful Preface for Fr. Schulte's book. It's plain to see that both the Vincentians and the Franciscans have a special role in the story of Mary's House. The Vincentians, inspired by Sr. Marie de Mandat-Grancey, found Mary's House and then through the generosity of Sr. Marie restored it for all God's children for all time. The Franciscans are not only the caretakers of Mary's House for the past 20 years, but also are so faithfully involved in promoting the book on the life of Sr. Marie and Mary's House in Ephesus. We are so grateful to God for the Vincentians and Franciscans! May God richly bless these two holy religious orders. Fr. Benedict Groeschel's Sunday Might Prime show should air in early June and we will keep you posted!
