Saint Katharine Drexel MontageRead

Today we read about St. Katharine Drexel who was dedicated to providing for the needs of African Americans in her community. She also founded Xavier University in New Orleans.


St. Katharine Drexel, an heiress of millions, asked the pope for more missionaries, and he told her to become one! So, she left her life of privilege and founded a religious order dedicated to the poor: the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament. Have you considered becoming a missionary to build up the Kingdom of God?


Today we say this prayer to be disciples and missionaries in everyday life.


Join Pope Francis in supporting the work of missionaries all over the world. Consider making a donation today!
