Celebrating Marguerite’s Feast Day in Mexico

Frances Connell, Miramichi Associate

On the feast of Marguerite, I found myself at daily mass in our old mission church. I am a lone Congregation of Notre Dame presence in this town in the hills of central Mexico. Around me were the beautiful Mexican people so steeped in faith and love, joy and courage. These are the poor, the little people who are ignored and have no voice... they are the elderly with no income, the children who cannot get an education, mothers who give their food to their children before they eat. So many struggling poor families yet brave and happy with the little they have.

Before communion they turn to me. La Paz del señor este siempre contigo.

"The Lord hears the cry of the poor, blessed be the Lord". Psalm 34
