Prayer to St. Rose Philippine Duchesne

November 18, 2022

St. Rose 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.

We ask 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.
