Quote of the day, 28 September: Sr. Geneviève, o.c.d.

When Uncle Isidore Guérin died on this date in 1909, Céline was crushed in spirit, anguished that she could not be at her family’s side.

Quote of the day, 16 September: St. Louis Martin

In 1885 St. Louis Martin accompanied a priest on a pilgrimage to Constantinople, Athens, and Rome. While in Constantinople he wrote a newsy letter on this date to his daughter Marie, praising her for doing an excellent job of managing the household. He also described in some detail the sights that he had seen.
