November 20, 2019

WSFI 88.5FM Host, Angela Tomlinson is joined by Chicago-based Lucia Mauro, and studio guests Rosemarie Simon and Patricia Berktold on the feast day of Mother Francis Cabrini, the subject of today's show.  Lucia Mauro and her husband and producer, Joe Orlandini have screened the film in over 30 locations, since its premier in 2017.  The touching and inspirational story of Mother Cabrini, an Italian Immigrant, instructed by Pope Leo XIII to minister to her people in the United States, is especially poignant because it was filmed here, in Chicagoland, at many of the places Mother Cabrini established and was very active from 1899-1917,  The Patron Saint of Immigrants, Mother Cabrini founded the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and founded 67 missionary institutions to serve the sick and poor who carry on her work to this day.
