Wednesday of the Thirty-third Week in Ordinary Time

Saint of the day

Saint Rose Philippine Duchesne (1769-1852)

Sister Rose Duchesne was known for praying without ceasing. She was also a woman who gave thanks to God, even though as a missionary to the United States she lived a life of great physical hardship on the frontier. Sister Rose was a Frenchwoman who came to this country to serve the Native Americans. She lived in Kansas and Missouri. There the Native Americans called her “Woman Who Prays Always.” (Taken from "Take Ten: Daily Bible Reflections for Teens.")


Do you follow the example of Saint Rose and minister to those who are in need, regardless of any physical hardships or pain that you might endure? Spend some quiet time with the Lord. Ask him to help you to minister to others, even if you feel physically hurt or exhausted afterwards.


Native people in this country and in other parts of the world still have many needs. Remember those people in your prayers and whenever the opportunity to help arises. (Taken from “Take Ten: Daily Bible Reflections for Teens.”)
