My Mother is a Saint. . .
CNS has an interesting interview with one of the daughters of St. Gianna. I’ve always been uncomfortable with her story, because of the way her decision left the other children motherless.
Another take on having a saint for a mother is the underrated movie The Third Miracle, with Ed Harris and Anne Heche. If you have’t seen it, it’s worth a spot on your Netflix lineup. The Anne Heche character is dealing with isssues of abandonoment by her mother –of a different sort.
I’ve never read anything by Dorothy Day’s daughter, but I imagine that can’t have been easy, either.
