St. Mary Magdalen de’ Pazzi

The Carmelite Institute of North America will present a Live Streaming Webinar in honor of the 450th Anniversary of St. Mary Magdalen de’Pazzi.  This Webinar is being presented by Fr. Miceal O’Neill, O.Carm., Ph.D.
“The life of the Carmelite mystic, St. Mary Magdalen de’Pazzi (1566-1607) was a continual discovery of the gift of God, through the communication that God gives to those who are prepared to receive it. Because of peoples’ weakness in knowing the gift, Love was not loved, and the Church was in need of reform. “
