On this day in 1881, Bld Pauline von Mallinckrodt, founder of the Sisters of Christian Charity (also called the Daughters of the Immaculate Conception) died. She founded her order with the goal of caring for and teaching the blind, however their apostolate quickly spread to include homeless children and the mentally disabled. In today's world where the "inconvenient" are killed in their mothers' wombs, truly Bld Pauline von Mallinckrodt is an example for our time.
Blessed Pauline, pray for us!

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
