What a wonderful heritage and legacy we celebrate today - that on January 24, 1824 twelve women in Paris professed their vows as Sisters of Bon Secours and pledged to be a presence of good help to the sick and dying in their homes; something truly unheard of at that time! Something risky yet creative. Something that inspired other women to follow and others to seek their compassion and good help in their times of need.
The same Spirit moves among us today, calling us to a new creativity; to take new risks; to continue to meet the pressing needs of today in our world.
We give thanks for our 12 founding sisters and all those who came before us and on whose shoulders we stand. We give thanks for all of our sisters, associates, ministry volunteers and co-workers today who generously provide compassion, healing and liberation to people in need. And we give thanks for all those who will come and join us tomorrow and in future years to be “good help to those in need.”
Blessings and love,
