For the Feast of St. Rose Philippine Duchesne

The above icon was commissioned by Sacred Heart Schools Chicago
and the original hangs in their  Chapel.
by Artist and Iconographer Sr. Patricia Reid, RSCJ

Gracious God, You filled the heart of Philippine Duchesne With charity and missionary zeal, And gave her the desire To make You known among all peoples. Fill us, who honor her memory today, With that same love and zeal To extend your Kingdom to the ends of the earth. We ask this through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit , One God, forever and ever. Amen
