Sr. Tatum McWhirter will be speaking about the life of Chiara Corbella Petrillo at the Catholic Women’s Conference in Buffalo, New York on February 24th, 2018. To register for the conference go to: CatholicWomenofBuffalo.
While Sr. Tatum lived in Rome, she was encouraged, along with her Sisters of the Apostles of the Interior Life, to go to the funeral of Chiara. The funeral was an experience of eternity for all of those who participated and for Sr. Tatum, personally, as it was a pivotal moment in her journey towards consecrating her life to God. She desired to share with others in America Chiara’s inspiring story so she began providing materials in English. This would eventually put her in contact with the loved ones of Chiara, like Enrico, her husband, and the friends who wrote her biography, Simone and Cristiana. Their friendship has helped her get to know Chiara better and to discover more how Chiara let herself be transformed by the love of God.
