“You may dazzle the mind with a thousand brilliant discoveries of natural science; you may open new worlds of knowledge which were never dreamed of before; yet, if you have not developed in the soul of the pupil strong habits of virtue which will sustain her in the struggle of life, you have not educated her, but only put in her hand a powerful instrument of self-destruction.” (St. Rose Philippine Duchesne)

The Optional Memorial of St. Rose Phiippine Duchesne (1769 – 1852) is November 18.
