DAILY ANNOUNCEMENTS
25 September 2017

Please pray for the freshmen as they are on retreat today (Monday).

This week is Banned Books Week 2017.
Do you know the difference between a challenged book and a banned book? Any book can be CHALLENGED. It is when it is removed from curriculum or off the library shelves because of the challenge that is considered BANNED.
Each day this week on Twitter Mrs. Doyle will ask a trivia question; if you know the answer, come to the library for a prize. Celebrate your “RIGHT to READ” and have access to fiction and non-fiction information all week by checking Mrs. Doyle’s Twitter page (Mrs. Doyle @DASHllibrary).

*************************************

Gracious God,
Thank you for the gift of today.
Refresh me. Invite me to discover your presence
In each person that I meet
And every event that I encounter.
Teach me when to speak and when to listen
When to ponder and when to share.
In moments of challenge and decision
Attune my heart to the whisperings of your Wisdom.
As I undertake ordinary and unnoticed tasks,
Gift me with simple joy.
When my day goes well, may I rejoice.
When it grows difficult, surprise me with
New possibilities.
When life is overwhelming, call me to
Sabbath moments
To restore your Peace and Harmony.
May my living today reveal your Goodness.

#19.  The missionary group was at lunch when in the midst of it the carriage arrived.  The nuns gathered near the outer door and one of them noted briefly afterward:

“The moment of separation was very painful for us all.  As for Mother Duchesne, she did not shed a tear, though we know how deeply she felt it all, for she is naturally so affectionate.” 

Mother Duchesne would admit later on how costly the sacrifice had been but at the moment of departure she showed no sign of it.  Happily, she could not see the length of the journey stretched before her.  (Philippine Duchesne, Louise Callan, rscj)
