We remember Catherine McAuley

The Spirit of Catherine

We remember Catherine McAuley on the anniversary of the death in 1841.

Having experienced the love and mercy of God, Catherine’s sense of gratitude called her to acts of mercy in the service of others.

Suscipe of Catherine McAuley 

My God, I am yours for time and eternity
Lord, I am yours forever.
It’s you that must teach me to trust in your Providence, Loving Lord. 
You are a God of love and tenderness. I put my faith in you,
And I ask that you grant me acceptance of your will,
Loving, Lord.
Take from my heart all painful anxiety.
Let nothing sadden me but sin.
And let my delight be hoping to see your face, God, my all.
