Today we celebrated the Feast Day of Father Gailhac, the founder of the RSHM order, who in the 1840’s in France recognized a need to empower young women and bring the love of God into their lives. He was a prolific letter writer, offering support and inspiration to the early Sisters of the RSHM who went on to devote their lives to schools, orphanages, and social causes, always serving those on the margin. If his messages could be boiled down to their essence, he repeats “courage and zeal” often throughout his leadership and letters. That same sentiment is, I believe, at the heart of Marymount London today. There is no better way to celebrate his work and his example than by living that same spirit each day!
‘May God be in everything you do. Therefore, seize hold of God by the intensity of your faith, stay close to him by your trust, and identify yourself with him through your love.’
Fr. Jean Gailhac
