Feast of Saint Philippine Duchesne

 Here is the prayer of Philippine that I love:

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.

St. Philippine Duchesne, RSCJ

Here is the first verse of a hymn I love because it catches the essence of Philippine's love....

Strong was her heart that heard God's voice when far it call across the sea, and swiftly came the answer of her love that gave its all triumphantly. For you were ready, Philippine, to let God's summons set you free.
