Troyes Pilgrimage Reflections

As we celebrate the 400th Anniversary of Marguerite Bourgeoys’ birth, there have been different events and activities around the world to mark this milestone. One of these activities initiated by the English-speaking CND associates was a Pilgrimage to Troyes to “Walk in the Footsteps of Marguerite” in her hometown from September 17 - 23. The associates asked me to lead them on this venture and I was more than happy to do so. It was both an honor and a privilege to be part of this event. I would like to share some reflections on the pilgrimage.

Beatitudes of Mary for Advent

Introduction:  In this prayer service, we are focusing on how Mary is blessed by her call, her response and birth of Jesus.  We are inspired by the September Associate Retreat that Kathleen Deignan led on Marguerite’s Beatitudes.   Marguerite understood that Mary is a blessing in our lives and she  blesses us with the gifts we need this Advent.   We are suggesting some songs but you may wish to choose others.
