By far, the story of Blessed Margaret of Castello is the best I have ever read! She was absolutely AMAZING! Her parents were of nobility. They were wealthy! They were also very proud, self-cented and vain. Ashamed of her "ugliness" and deformity, Margaret's parents had their little six year old daughter brought to a small room which was built for her, in order to keep her out of sight. The room was adjoined to the church Margaret loved. After being placed in the room, her father had the walls sealed up so, except for a small window where she could hear mass and adore the Blessed Sacrament. Now her parents would never have to worry about anyone finding out they had a deformed, blind and ugly daughter. Margaret was sealed up in that room for 14 years! She felt she was "unworthy" to suffer for the Lord in such a special way. But through all of that pain, she loved her parents very much and prayed for them constantly. Margaret's heart continued to magnify the Lord. After her isolation, Margaret's parents abandoned her in a church, far from her home, and she felt "guilty" that she was such a burden to them all of her life! She continued to pray for them and thank God for allowing her to follow in the Lord's Footsteps. This book is a MUST READ! I can't say enough about it. I've bought several copies just to give away to people who I know would be inspired by Little Margaret. All those with whom I shared this book, immediately fell in love with "God's Little Cinderella".
Margaret's life proves to us just how valuable we really are in the Eyes of God.
ATTENTION: PARENTS, GRANDPARENTS, TEACHERS and RELIGOUS EDUCATION INSTRUCTORS! I strongly urge you to get this book for the children in your lives!Read more ›
Blessed Margaret of Castello lived a life of exemplary GRACES. She was hideous to look at--(Her words not mine) but her Soul shinned like the sun. IF you want to read something that will uplift you, tug at your heart, and cheer for a underdog of epic proportions then I highly recommend this book.
I have a HUGE library of Christian Saints as JESUS CHRIST is my Lord and Savior, of my entire collection, this is one of my prized possessions. I look forward to the day when I can meet Blessed Margaret of Castello in Heaven.
