    We work in multiple settings for the full development of the human person. These settings include preschools, parishes, tutoring centers or graduate programs; studios, prisons, immigrant centers or clinics; leading processes that guide communities to choose a Gospel path, or directing programs that promote systemic change.

Feast of Blessed Marie Rose - October 6, 2012

In celebration of the Feast of Blessed Marie Rose

MMR

Ever alive, Marie Rose...

What remains of you
is more than a body worn out by service,
more than bones polished by years of wear
and tear.

It is more than a name engraved on a tombstone
or written in our history books.
It is more than a picture or a relic,
however cherished they may be.

What remains of you
is an unassuming radiance on our milieu.
It is protection for our families.
It is a look of tenderness on our children.
It is a presence to call on.

What remains of you
is an élan of active love.
It is complete trust in the person.
It is a grace of a serene life,
of peace to invoke for our world.

What remains of you
is the joy of welcome and of gift.
It is the ardent love for Jesus and Mary.
It is the invitation to pray God; to bring God
to others through the simple gestures of our lives.

Woman, happy and free,
Blessed Marie Rose
You are ever alive!

- Simone Perras, SNJM, April 2004
