Dear Ladies and Friends of TASTE,

  • We hope that each of you had a blessed Easter and we look forward to seeing you when we return, not this week, but on Thursday, April 11 with a talk by Fr. Ebuka Mbanude on Sr. Josephine Bakhita.
  • On the heels of Easter, we have another occasion to celebrate as this upcoming Sunday (and every 1st Sunday after Easter) is designated as "Divine Mercy Sunday." Our Lord Himself called for this special feast day as a refuge and a shelter for all souls, and especially for poor sinners as He pours out an ocean of graces upon those souls who approach His fount of mercy.  Click HERE to learn more about this feast.
  • Finally, we also ask for prayers for all of those who are impacted by the Key Bridge Tragedy.
Joy, Michele, Karen, and Helen
Jesus, I trust in You!


CARRY-OVERS - The below information is carried over from the last email.

  • UNIVERSALIS APP Are you looking for an awesome Catholic App that includes: 1) Mass readings and associated commentaries, 2) Information about each day's Saint or Feast Day, 3) Liturgy of the Hours, 4) Prayers for throughout the day, 5) A Scriptural Rosary, and more. All of this is currently available for one-time fee of only $11.99 and no monthly subscriptions.  Not only does the Universalis App provide all of that, but it also includes a couple of books that John-Mark mentioned in his recent talk  "A Retreat for Lay People" and "The Catholic Church and Conversion" — both for free!
  • JOAN WATSON PODCAST  One of our speakers, Joan Watson, started a new podcast that is connected to Verso.  Interestingly, some of it was inspired by a TASTE talk she did several years ago about life being a pilgrimage.  So if you are planning a trip or just on the pilgrimage of daily living, listen to In Via, her new podcast that explores the daily pilgrimage of life!  Find it HERE or wherever you listen to podcasts. Connections to the other places you may listen (e.g., Apple and Spotify and Google Play) are also on that link.
