St. Philippine Duchesne
The feast of Rose Philippine Duchesne in November 18, but that day is also the Dedication of Saints Peter and Paul. I have been preparing for Philippine's feast this year by reading her Complete Works; I have read over 1,200 pages and still have years to go in the 2nd volume, but I am loving it as I almost feel as if I were present while Philippine is penning her many letters or making entries in the Journal that she kept so faithfully.
I will copy again here a favorite prayer of Philippine:
"I am where God wills me to be,
and so I have found rest and security.
God's wisdom governs me,
God's power defends me,
God's mercy encompasses me,
God's joy sustains me,
And all will go well with me."
