PAGE 6 POST-GAZETTE, JULY 15, 2016 ALL ZAZZ by Mary N. DiZazzo The Vanity of It All Ciao Della, How many of you gals get your face on in the bathroom? I could never understand it. However, I'm sure it's the majority of ladies who hit the bathroom to use the mirror, standing with ill lighting and steamy from showering[ Makeup tuDes and caps flying all over the floor[ Well, it is never too late to find a nice place in the bedroom for a vanity with mirror[ Why, as far back as I can remember, I owned a lighted makeup mirror and would sit down in front of it and primp. We even bought a mini-vanity for Dad's house when we would stay over on the weekend. When I set up housekeeping cup when she won a cosmetology competition on the vanity, and just behind it I keep my Hollywood lights makeup mirror with different settings, including daytime, work, and nighttime. Dad bought me this one as soon as he knew my last mirror bit the dust. He knew how important it was to replace it. The shopping hunt was on -- Sears, Filene's, Jordan Marsh, and even Woolworth'sl He wouldn't stop he found it[ That was Dad[ I dread mentioning where we finally found itI (No, not eBay[} When I sit on my vanity chair which is laced with Nana's fur fox tails, I am in heaven[ Surrounded by my fave perfumes i~emy first apartment, I recall and colors that enhance my spffing a walnut vintage vanity at Harold's Broadway Second Hand Store in Lawrence. Its chocolate elegance held a magnificent mirror which was built -in and adjusted in a swing motion to your better side. There were two drawers on each side and one in the middle. Plenty of space for makeup of all kinds, hair accessories, brushes and combs, even jewelry and just about everything: a =Glamazon~ like me would need to play "makeup!" I remember purchasing this Cadillac of cabinetry before I bought the bedl When Mom would visit, she would always remark that she thought I was getting ready for my close-up in the cinema[ I have a beautifully framed photo of Nana with her silver eyes and face, moisturizers and creams applied at leisure, it's my time to relax and enjoy the transformation. Oh, and it is a transformation! Lipsticks that are from Jungle Red to Orange Crush! Greens, purple, and blue glitter eyeliners are my faves from Tony & Tina's line. (No longer being manufactured for yet another divorce!) My Vanity, my friend, has weathered every move, and now, as I figure out how long this relationship has lasted, I can understand why the makeup I wore at 19 years old has had to change its face during our 42 years together!

She was the eldest of the ten children of Joseph and Maddalena Calcagno Maz- zarello. When she was fifteen, she joined the Association of the Daughters of Mary Immaculate, run by her parish priest, Fa- ther Domenico Pestarino. The Daughters were known for their charitable works. Maria became known for her sound judgment, dedication, joy, and love of the young. When she was 23, a typhoid epidemic hit Mornese and villag- ers rapidly started dying. Soon her uncle and aunt were taken ill and Maria volunteered to care for them and their children. Af- ter a week they recovered, but when she returned home, Maria became ill with typhoid herself. She received the last rites of the Church and recovered, but the illness left her weak. Maria was now thin and frail, a shell of her formerly robust self. She was not sure what she could do in life without her for- mer energy and vigor. With her closest friend, PetroniUa Maz- zareUo {no relation), she decided to start a professional school for girls in her locality. Maria's work expanded when a gentle- man presented himself with two young girls. They had just lost their mother and he asked Maria to take care of them while he looked for employment. With this incident, Maria started the first educational boarding school which would multiply as the years went on. On Sundays, Mafia gathered the girls around the district and offered them the opportunity to play and pray together. The day was filled with games, amusements and prayer meetings. The education of girls was a particular need in the nine- teenth century, and Maria de- cided to devote herself to this work. Hosts of farm girls from the country, factory workers, and street vending girls filled the streets of the city. Maria wished to educate them, and teach them a trade, to save them from the dangers of street life. In 1864, Don Bosco came to Mornese when Maria was twenty-seven years old. He saw the great work Mafia and her friends were doing for the youth and was very impressed with what he saw. He himself had been thinking of founding a religious congregation of women who would work for girls as he and his friends were doing for boys. Over a period of eight years, the Institute of the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians was formed and Mafia Mazzarello became the first Salesian Sister and leader of the new congre- gation. She dedicated herself to children, adolescents and youth. With other religious women, Maria founded houses in Italy and France. Weakened by the typhoid shr had contracted when she was young, and weakened too by her hard work, Mafia's health be- gan to deteriorate. Maria passed away on May 14, 1881;she was just 44 years old. On June 24, 1951, Maria Mazzarello was proclaimed a Saint by Pope Pius XII. Today the Daughters of Mary help of Christians (Salesian Sis- ters} work for young people in all continents of the world.
