A Joyous Saint
The picture shows you that I am well aware of tomorrow's feast but may be late in posting. I return to Miami today after a wonderful week with friends in St. Louis.
Yesterday, I visited the Shrine of St. Philippine Duchesne at the Academy of the Sacred Heart where I went to school. Someone gave me some quotes from Mother Janet Erskine Stuart, RSCJ and I want to share two of them with you. But only one today as I need to pack! The other will be for tomorrow!
Yes, so be a saint; why not? What else is worth living for, caring about; and every little thing in the day may help you on towards it, if you will look at it on the right side as coming to you from our dearest God, who is so IN with us in our daily troubles and duties, for whom nothing is too great or too small, who is so understanding and loving to all our moods and aches and longings...If you have Him in the details of your life with you, all is well and you can manage anything. So love God and trust God all you can and let nothing take you away from the keep of that strong castle, God the refuge of His people.
