Mourning Joy

Good Mourning Widows!

Joy to you and me.

Today we honor famous widow, Elizabeth Ann Seton, a.k.a., Mother Seton, founder and first Superior of the Sisters of Charity, and wife of William.

Upon the death of William, Elizabeth was left to raise their five children, alone and penniless. No stranger to tragedies, she buried 18 nuns from her order, her two daughters, and both sisters-in-law in her lifetime.

Despite her sorrows, Seton prayed her way through life's joys and tragedies. With the aid of the Sisters of Charity, Elizabeth Seton cared for orphans, widows, and poor families.

She once wrote,

"...give some time everyday if it is only a half an hour to devotional reading."

After we remember Him, why not devote some time to writing?

Just pick up a pen. Go ahead. I dare you.

Mourning Joy:

Q: Where is the ocean deepest?

A: On the bottom.


Have a joyful day. And remember, we're not alone.
