'Do Not Forget What Your Eyes Have Seen'

For 30 years, Sister Shirley Miller, has seen and heard God in every person she met on her journey through life. Wherever she has encountered them — in the mountains, by oceans and rivers, at the countryside, and in classrooms — she has been enriched by what people have revealed to her. “Each day we are given opportunities to see beauty all around us,” says Sister Shirley. “All we have to do is pay attention.” This book is an invitation to do just that. You don’t need a camera, just an attentive heart.

‘Philippine Duchesne, Pioneer on the American Frontier (1769-1852) Volume 1 and 2: Complete Works’

In 1818, Mother Rose Philippine Duchesne, of the newly-founded Society of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, left France to participate in the missionary expansion of the Catholic Church in the New World, at the request of Bishop Louis William Dubourg, named bishop of “Louisiana.” This vast area, acquired by the United States from France in 1803, extended over a territory of 530,000,000 acres (828,000 square miles), from New Orleans to Canada, including all the lands drained by the vast river system of the Mississippi and the Missouri, the future Midwest of the United States.
