    En 1973 Juan A. Espinosa escribió la canción “Santa María del Camino” con la cual invita a la Madre de Dios a caminar con sus her- manos y hermanas en la fe. La canción reta al creyente a caminar a pesar de lo difícil que puede ser y a luchar por los cambios que sólo el Reino de Dios puede realizar. En todo esto María es invitada a cami- nar con el creyente. En esta semana recordamos la Asunción de María al cielo, y lo hacemos reconociendo que además de ser Madre de Dios y madre nuestra, ella también es nuestra hermana y compañera en el camino de la fe. Ella ha llegado a la meta de nuestra peregrinación y lo ha hecho en cuerpo y alma por un privilegio singular. Nosotros también lo haremos en los últimos días cuando nuestro cuerpo resucite para unir- se con nuestra alma. Es en vista de los últimos tiempos que invitamos a María a des- cender de sus altares, regresando del cielo una y otra vez para cami- nar con sus hermanas y hermanos, en la fe, que tanto necesitan su ejemplo y apoyo. —Fray Gilberto Cavazos-Glz, OFM, Copyright © J.

    Careful readers of the “Treasures” will have noticed that the two col- umns about the oldest monastic communities in the United States refer to the colonial states. The Louisiana Purchase gained a great treasure for our nation, the Ursuline monastery of New Orleans. Among the greatest pioneers of that city were nuns who came from France on a perilous voyage in 1727, pestered by pirates and tossed by fearsome storms. These were genteel, well-educated Ursulines, yet their first task was to roll up their sleeves and open a hospital to care for the pesti- lence-ridden colony. Next, they opened a school for girls and launched a plan to educate the women being shipped over from France to marry settlers. In this way, they had enormous influence in molding patterns of family and domestic life. At Christmastime in 1814, the threat of a British assault on the city was growing. On the terrifying night of January 7, 1815, the women of New Orleans gathered in the monastery chapel to pray that the city be spared from destruction in battle. The mother superior made a vow to have a Mass of Thanksgiving on that date every year should the Ameri- cans win. That night, Our Lady of Prompt Succor, to whom the nuns had great devotion, became the protector and patron of this great city. The convent in the French Quarter is the oldest standing building in the Mississippi valley, and the only surviving building of the French colonial period. The nuns relocated in 1824, but their old monastery is pre- served as a museum and archives for the Archdiocese of New Orleans. The school the nuns began, Ursuline Academy, is the oldest continu- ously operating Catholic school, and school for women, in the United States. —Rev. James Field, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.

  • Thank You!

    Remember O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaid- ed. Inspired by this confidence I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.
