Blessed are the footsteps of her who proclaims the Gospel, the Good News of peace.
Blessed are the handmaids of the Church, for they possess the heart of this Mother.
Blessed are the walkers of God, who in the mystic silence of the convent study the ways of the world, and on the morrow walk them to reach souls.
Blessed are these angels of the Lord, who seek out those who have lost or never found the path of the Church.
Blessed are the postmistresses of God, who bring to every family his Gospel of Love.
Blessed are these cooperators with the zealous efforts of priests; silently they preach Jesus Christ, the Way and the Truth and the Life.
Blessed are the imitators of Mary, who present Jesus to the shepherds, to the Magi, to Simeon in the Temple, to the disciples, to the world.
Blessed are the Daughters of St. Paul, who possess the heart of their Father, who give their Father‘s word, who with their Father-suffering, praying, working-accomplish the work assigned them by God.
From various parts of the earth, the roads converge on a single meeting point. Jesus is there extending the invitation: “Come, blessed ones, into my Father’s kingdom”.
May the blessing of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, descend upon them and accompany them as they journey so that they may bear fruit that will last, for the glory of God and peace to all men and women. Amen.
