Saints Who Served: Episode the Third, St. Zita

St. Zita was born into a poor but holy Christian family. Her older sister became a Cistercian nun and her uncle Graziano was a hermit whom the local people regarded as a saint. Zita herself always tried to do God's will obediently whenever it was pointed out to her by her mother. At the age of twelve Zita became a housekeeper in the house of a rich weaver in Lucca, Italy, eight miles from her home at Monte Sagrati.

Welcome Back!

Its a New Year, a new semester, and a new day! Welcome back to Marian University!  This is your very friendly reminder of several things: 
  1. STARR commences this Friday, January 13!  Come and join us and kick off the new semester the right way, with a few hours of service.
  2. Invite your friends to come and check out STARR blog!  With the coming semester, we hope to expand our blog and make it a service based social connection for Marian students and all interested in the spirit of service.
  3. Spread the word about STARR!  If you're like me and failed to come up with a resolution before Lady Gaga dropped the Times Square Ball, make your resolution to go to STARR as much as possible!
That is all!  Blessings and salutations.
