January Reflection



Catherine encourages us to “….. be cheerful and happy, animating all around.”

We see this as she makes preparation for her first foundation in England. On November 17th 1839, two years before her death she wrote a last minute letter to her closest friend Sr. Francis Warde describing her preparations for the journey to Bermondsey “ I have my list of songs prepared for the journey” This tells us so much about her. She loved music and merriment. The singer and the list maker, this sums up a great deal about Catherine, her joyfulness and her sensible practicality. They are two qualities that run through her whole life and her spirituality.
 
“We have one solid comfort amidst this little tripping about, our hearts can always be in the same place, centred in God.”
