Feast of St. Philippine Duchesne

The entire United States/Canada Province is united this week end in three regional meetings. We are fortunate to have our region meeting here so we are able to stay put and receive all those who are coming. I am on the welcome committee and will be greeting all this afternoon as they arrive. We have prayer to open the week end and then we will all have supper together. The week end is quite full so I am trying to prepare my blogs ahead.

The General Chapter spoke of a different images and the one that reminds me most of St. Philippine says that the Society of the Sacred Heart is like a family that decides to set sail in order to look for new life, a new land. It takes with it the part of its heritage that is essential. Philippine kept the little band in America united with the Society in France. Today, we are in about 43 countries, but still united. We have much to thank Philippine for today.
