Today we are overjoyed to celebrate the first beatification to ever be held in the United States! Soon-to-be blessed Miriam Teresa Demjanovich will be beatified today at the Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Newark, New Jersey.
The “American St. Thérèse” died in 1927 at the age of 26. Her life was short, but she lived it with great love. She prayed often, served much, and she wrote and taught as a Sister of Mercy.
Blessed Miriam Teresa is a beautiful model for young people attempting to discern God’s will, and so we ask her to pray for those who seek the Lord’s guidance, that they may hear His call and have the courage to follow it.
