"My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think that I am following Your Will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to please You does in fact please You. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing..." - Thomas Merton

FEAST DAY CELEBRATION:
At Notre Dame

To commemorate the Marian Congress of 1947 and to celebrate the 100th anniversary of our diocese, and the Consecration of
Canada to the Blessed Mother which occurred during that congress. There was a beautiful procession from the Chapel at the Mother House of the Sisters of Charity
of Ottawa to Notre Dame Cathedral. Leading the procession was a replica
statue of Our Lady of the Cape identical to the one that was used in the
consecration of Canada to the Blessed Mother seventy years ago.
