Page 6 POST-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 15, 2013 Saint Claude De La Colombiere by BenneMolinan Saint Claude was a Mis- sionary and ascetical writer, born of noble parentage at Saint-Symphorien-d'Ozon between Lyons and Vienne in 1641. In 1659 he entered the Society of Jesus and gained widespread fame as an orator and educator in Paris. After fifteen years of religious life as a Jesuit, he made a vow, to observe faith- fully the Rule and Constitu- tions of the Jesuit order under penalty of sin as a means of attaining the utmost perfection. In 1674 Father de la ColombiEre was made supe- rior at the Jesuit house at Paray-le-Monial where he became the spiritual direc- tor of Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque and learned of the visions she had been privi- leged to receive. He thereaf- ter became a zealous apostle of the devotion to the Sacred and Richard Molinari Heart of Jesus, encouraging her to spread the devotion as she had been instructed by Our Lord. In 1676 he contin- ued to promote the devotion when he was sent to En- gland as preacher to the Duchess of York. He lived the life of the religious even in the Court of St. James and was as active a missionary in England as he had been in France. Although encoun- tering many difficulties, he was able to guide Saint Mar- garet Mary by letter. An illness involving his throat and lungs seemed to threaten his work as a preacher. While awaiting his recall to France, he was sud- denly arrested and thrown into prison, denounced as a conspirator against the English throne. Thanks to his title of "Preacher to the Duchess of York" and to the protection of the King of France, Louis XIV, he es- caped death but was con- demned to exile in 1679. The last two years of his life were spent at Lyon where he was spiritual director to the young Jesuits and at Paray- le-Monial where he returned to improve his health. He died at Paray-le-Monial on February 15, 1682 at the age of forty-one in accord with the last message he received from Saint Marga- ret Mary: "He wants the sacrifice of your life in this country." Saint Claude's Feast Day is celebrated on February 15 u'. ...... STgRANT & B,',R Cooking Series I - Soups and Stocks Bring your notebook and apron on Wednesday, February 27, 2013 from 6-9pro.

Bring a friend or make new onesl RENATO TURANO Candidate for the Italian Senate On Tuesday, February 12 , a reception was held in honor of Renato Turano, candi- date for the Italian Senate, at Gennaro's 5 North Square Ristorante in the North End, Boston. Hosted by Albano Ponte, the well-attended evening included cocktails, appitizers (prepared by Executive Chef Marisa Iocco) and a question and answer session with the candidate. Renato Turano is a Chicago-area business executive and community leader who is campaigning to represent the Italian citi- zens of North and Central America in the Italian Senate. When Italians abroad were granted the right to vote for the first time, Turano served as senator from 2006 through 2008. At that time, Turano and the other five senators elected abroad formed a commit- tee with a dozen other senators from Italy to identify the needs of Italian citizens liv- ing around the world. "We laid the groundwork for sweeping changes during our 20 short months in office and most of those plans have been gathering dust ever since," Turano explains. "I'm running again to finish the job we started back in 2006." Turano was born in Calabria in 1942 and with his family moved to America when he was 15 years old. In 1962 the Turano family bought a small bakery in Chicago that Renato and his brothers, Umberto and Giancarlo, transformed into one of the largest manu- facturers of artisan breads in North America: the Turano Baking Company. If elected, Renato Turano will work tire- lessly to accomplish many objectives: Passing legislation to make it easier to reclaim Italian citizenship Increasing funding to Italian consulates, improving consular services, eliminating duplication of effort among Italian govern- ment offices Increasing funding to Italian language programs on the elementary, middle and high school levels Left to Right: Michael DeSousa, Renato Turano and Albano Ponte. Increasing cultural programs from Italy and make them more accessible to the community Subsidizing newspapers, radio shows and television programs that promote Italian culture and language Encouraging academic, student and cul- tural exchanges on the university level Facilitating economic exchanges, joint ventures and increased trade Reforming the Italian electoral process Renato Turano has held leadership posi- tions on the national and international levels as well, serving on the Assocamerestero, an association of 76 Italian Chambers of Com- merce around the world, and as consultore/ advisor to the Region of Calabria, represent- ing the interests of Calabresi in North America at their annual work conferences in Italy. With all that he has accomplished, Turano is most proud of and thankful for his family. He has worked for fifty years with his two brothers, whom he considers his best friends, and he cherishes his relationship with his wife of forty-seven years, his three children and his nine grandchildren.
