"Christian love, giving our life to others, is a road fraught with suffering and failures - but this road leads to life's only true joy and success." Helen McLaughin, Symposium for Canonisation of Rose Philippine Duchesne, 2 July 1988.

St Philippine Duchesne is remembered in the USA as a frontierswoman, and certainly she suffered the harsh reality of life on the frontier. She also suffered from feeling that she was a failure. However today we see clearly the fruit of her work.

– what can we learn from the steadfast love that drove Philippine Duchesne?
– how are we giving our lives to others in love?
– where do we find joy and a sense of success?
