“The strength of a religious body depends not so much on its numbers as upon the fervor, zeal and devotedness of those who compose it; and especially upon the blessing of our good God, who seems to delight in effecting good by instruments few and feeble.”
Mother Catherine’s sentiments of 1841 are as relevant in our times as it was in her days, especially as we celebrate the Foundation Day. We have a rich legacy to live by … in the footsteps of Catherine and all SCNs who have exemplified fervor and commitment through their lives. May our hearts burn like Catherine’s, with a holy zeal for God and the community, and may we faithfully live our charism of charity.
May Bishop David and Catherine join us in spirit as we celebrate Foundation Day 2010!
