RIP Sister Germana - Famous Catholic Nun Known for Recipes Dies, at Age 82, who Wrote "When Angels Cook"

Sister Germana has died, who led a life with faith and recipes.  She was 82 years old at the time of her death and became famous with the book "When Angels Cook" but also gave advice to families. In 1999 she participated in the Sanremo Festival. Sister Germana died at Martina Consolaro on March 7, 2020 in Caronno Varesino. She became famous for cookbooks and annual agendas. She was also involved with newspapers, radio and TV. Thanks to the advice she gave to families, in an interview she said that she had "saved 100,000 marriages from crisis". Sister Germana's funeral will be held in strictly private form to follow the security and public protection provisions issued as a consequence of the Coronavirus emergency. We remember her affectionately with the words that she wrote for Easter a few years ago:

«I have a weight on my heart: how to say Happy Easter with what is going on in this world of ours? If we widen our gaze to all humanity, it seems increasingly difficult to find the place and time to exchange greetings for serenity and peace. And the more painful facts, the people involved and the suffering come closer, the more they upset us and also shake the faith. Who dies from bombs, who dies from faith, who falls victim to AIDS and hunger, who dies in the earthquake, who just born, who dies from drugs, who from alcohol ... Yet Easter is a passage that year after year it follows a path that comes from afar and takes us far beyond what we can imagine, desire, hope: a life beyond death, a life without end ... Utopia, dream? The choice to believe or not to believe is so personal and profound as to give an Easter meaning to our whole existence. This is why I wish you a happy Easter in the original sense which is what still responds to our hopes even in the midst of a reality that challenges our faith ».
