Kim King RSCJ has written this prayer to honor Philippine Duchesne, whose feast we celebrate on November 18.
A Prayer of Dedication to Saint Rose Philippine Duchesne
When we are asked to be bold and courageous,
You are our inspiration
When our imaginations dream and see beyond the limits of our sight,
You are our hope
When we fail to meet a challenge and need to accept our limitations,
You are our model
When we pray with the desire for deep union with God,
You are our Saint
And with your blessing, to the greater glory of God, we seek to be loving people who live and serve others with your same purpose, vision, and quiet humility.
