Remembering One of the Good Ones


In the Episcopal Church’s Liturgical calendar today is the feast of the remarkable Frances Joseph-Gaudet.

Their collect for her is a prayer of thanks for “Frances Joseph-Gaudet(‘s) work for prison reform and the education of her people: Grant that we, encouraged by the example of her life, may work for those who are denied the fullness of life by reasons of incarceration and lack of access to education…”

Would that there were more like the blessed Frances.

Amen.
