Denver Catholic, Jared Staudt: Almost exactly 100 years ago, on the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in 1918, a woman, a former slave, died in Denver. This apostle of the Sacred Heart, spreading devotion across the city, was the first lay Catholic to lie in state as hundreds visited her body to honor her works of charity. Friends had to help bury her, because she had given away her burial plot to a poor man. This woman is now on her way to becoming a canonized saint, with the first steps of the process complete and sent to the Vatican. I hope you know already her, but, if you don’t, it’s a good time to meet Servant of God Julia Greeley! More here.
