Saint Germaine Cousin by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari Saint Germaine was born in 1579 of humble parents in the village of Pibrac, near Toulouse, France, Her brief life was filled with sickness and suffering. She was born with a withered ann and soon contracted a disease, known at the time as Scrofula, a form of tuberculosis affecting the lymph nodes especially of the neck, most common in children. While still an infant, she lost her mother, her father remarried but his second wife treated Germaine with much cruelty. Under pre- tense of saving the other children from the contagion of scrofula, she persuaded the father to keep Germaine away from the family, and thus the child was employed as a shepherdess. When she returned at night to the stable were she was forced to live, her bed was made out of 9N FACILITY Specializing in the art of celebration Wedding, Anniversary, Quincea~era, Reunion, Birthday, Social and Corporate Events.

Germaine's inner life was the exact opposite of the pov- erty of her daffy life; she had a wonderful sense of the presence of God in her life that transformed her lonely life as a shepherdess into a source of light and blessing. She lived a life of voluntary austerity making bread and water her daily food. She would leave her sheep to at- tend daily Mass, yet they were never harmed during her absence. She often gath- ered the local children around her in order to teach them the rudiments of the Faith and shared the little food she had with the poor. It was reported that once, her stepmother accused her of stealing bread and hiding it in her apron; but when the apron was opened only sum- mer flowers were present, even though it was the dead of winter. The rigors of Germaine's daily life and ill health brought her to an early death. One morning in the early summer of 1601, her father finding that she had not risen at the usual hour went to call her; found her dead on her bed of vine-twigs, she was 22 years of age. In 1644 her grave was opened to receive the remains of one of her relatives, her body was found to be still incorrupt and when exposed for nearly a year became the object of veneration and the source of many miracles. Germaine was beatified on May, 1854 by Pope Pius IX and canonized on June 29, 1867. Saint Germaine is patroness of peasant girls, abuse victims, handicapped people, and abandoned people. Her feast is cel- ebrated on June 15% ALL THAT ZAZZ by Mary N. DiZa___... ~o__._~ Beauty Secret: Water Ciao Bella, One of my first Beauty Culture Columns I wrote going back 10 years was about water. The Romans and the Greeks kept a strict protocol and fondness for their H20. To them it was a prized possession! Meticu- lous strategies of cleansing were routine. The importance and neces- sity of water is endless. The therapeutic value by just taking a bath or shower may be cleansing on the ex- terior however your mind can be also purified. Person- ally whenever I need a pick me up I find a shower/bath just the right medicine. The temperature of the water as you test out your first step sets the tone for a true indulgence of privacy and inner cleansing. My out- door pool club and its huge body of water have always satisfied my mermaid fanta- sies as well! The feeling of touching water and feeling its clear, fluid gold is an elu- sive experience. Touching the intangible. Cool and warm water remain so close to each other. Each carries its own health and beauty qualities. Immersing your- self and letting your body feel ,4 caresses you with that "Calgon Take Me Away," an old and still true phrase. A lightness is experienced with a million miles left behind. Throw in a few fresh rose petals to scent the experience[ Drinking this wondrous nectar works its magic as well. Quenching the pallet, clearing the complexion and keeping our bodies running smoothly. Water is a trea- sure in itself waiting to be held, touched and savored. Experience the true blessing we use every day!
