Images of Philippine

Though the feast of St Rose Philippine Duchesne was yesterday, it can't hurt to keep celebrating it!

This is a newer statue of Philippine, commissioned by the city of St Charles, Missouri, just a few years ago.  It can be found at the corner of the property of the Academy of the Sacred Heart in St. Charles, the first school Philippine founded in the United States, in 1818.  I love the way it captures her affection for the child and the child's affection for her!

Do you want more??  One more day--the grand finale will be posted tomorrow morning!
