Among Women 214: Lessons from Sickness and the Brink of Death

August 30, 2016

In this episode:

“Blessed are They”: St Maud

“Among Women” Guest: Peggy Mannion

This week we look at the very personal journey of Pat’s friend, Peggy Mannion, who almost died from severe pancreatitis. Peggy looks back at her journey to the brink of death, and a return to wellness, as she recounts her faith in God, and the friendship of Mary, and a new way at looking at life.
