Happy 80th Birthday, Sr. Maria Cabrini!

We wish Sr. Maria Cabrini a very happy 80th birthday, and may she live many years to come!
Readers of this blog may recall that we only begin to celebrate birthdays when a sister turns 80 (we usually celebrate feast days instead). We have a party on a sister's 80th birthday, and cake and ice cream for dessert on subsequent birthdays--unless the sister is lucky enough to turn 90, or 100, and then we have another party!
Although this may seem unfair, it really does work out well for everyone--because we all get to eat cake and ice cream along with the birthday sister!
