This Saturday November 18, 2017, we celebrate the bicentennial celebration of St. Rose Philippine Duchesne, the religious of the Sacred Heart who brought Sacred Heart education to the New World. As we face our own "frontiers" today, we can look to St. Philippine for inspiration to explore and meet the challenges of today's world.
Prayer to St. Philippine Duchesne
You were a pioneer woman, called to join a pioneer endeavor,
• To explore
• To begin
• To expand the educational frontiers of a new world
Each of us, as a Duchesne Pioneer asks that, through your intercession, we be able to face our "frontiers and meet the challenge of being "pioneers". As boundaries appear before us, help us to step gently over despair and fashion a resurrection realm, a hope-hallowed world.
Help us to follow your model as we:
• strive for a world which we cannot explain
• risk our lives to find a new life
• challenge social patterns which give false comfort
• enter the Heart of the One who is the Beginning and End
• share in the restlessness of the Spirit
• become instruments of peace
