Villa Duchesne / Oak Hill School
November 30, 1819 ~ Mother Duchesne writes to St. Madeleine Sophie Barat, "So much about material things - but my heart is with you and with the Societies of Jesus and of the Sacred Heart. When I meditate on the fact that I belong to our Society, my soul expands with joy, tears of gratitude flow, and I see only happininess in privations. Could God do more for me? Only one greater favor could He bestow - the privilege of martyrdom. But on my side, how much more I could do!"
