Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of St. Marguerite Bourgeoys’ Canonization

The power of this woman

draws me like a magnet;

I cannot look away.

She lures me from the shelter

of false comforts

into the maelstrom

to set my face into the wind

and dare to follow

as she scatters

heartfuls of hope

in her wake.

Movie recommendation

Letters to Juliet is a happy movie, a love story. In Italy, an elderly lady (Vanessa Redgrave) is hoping to find a long-lost love. Her grandson is helping her, along with a pretty and smart young journalist. The scenery is magnificent.
