Saint Rose Philippine Duchesne, Virgin
[In the Diocese of the United States]
1769-1852 She founded a boarding school for daughters of pioneers near St. Louis and opened the first free school west of the Missouri. At seventy-one she began a school for Native Americans. In her life she showed great courage in frontier conditions and a single-mindedness in pursuing her dream of serving Native Americans.

Almighty God, who filled the hearts of Saint Rose Philippine Duchesne
with charity and missionary zeal,
and gave her the desire
to make you known among all peoples,
grant us to follow her way
and fill us with that same love and zeal
to extend your Kingdom to the ends of the earth.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. +Amen.
