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. The story is predictable, but I enjoyed this movie very much - no car crashes, no guns, no violence; only beauty, and hope, in a persistent search. Available on Netflix.

October is Women’s History Month in Canada

October is Women’s History Month in Canada; we acknowledge women and girls from the past and the present who contribute to making our country more inclusive. In 1992, the Canadian Government named October as a time to recognize and celebrate the outstanding efforts and achievements of women and girls in our country. This year marks the 30th anniversary. Recently, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau issued a lengthy statement on Women’s History Month. “Throughout our history,” he said, “women have played an invaluable role in shaping Canada….
