The blessing of Blessed Theresa Gerhardinger, SSND

Yesterday morning I went with Bishop Paprocki to Teutopolis to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the arrival of the School Sisters of Notre Dame in that part of the Diocese.

At the conclusion of the dinner following the Mass, the Sisters offered a blessing from their Foundress, Blessed Theresa Gerhardinger, SSND:

I entrust you to the Holy Spirit.

May God care for you and keep you faithful in your holy vocation.

May Jesus deliver you from all harm; may He be the way you walk, the truth you follow, the life you lead.

May the Holy Spirit preserve you in love and grace.

May Mary take you into her loving, motherly heart and standy by your always.
