St. Marguerite Bourgeoys

Today is her feast day. I had scarcely heard of her before today, but her name caught my eye (my own being Margaret, I have a natural interest in saints with the same name) and I looked her up. A lovely quote:

“Teaching is the work most suited to draw down the graces of God if it is done with purity of intention, without distinction between the poor and the rich, between relatives and friends and strangers, between the pretty and the ugly, the gentle and the grumblers, looking upon them all as drops of Our Lord’s blood.” The Writings of Marguerite Bourgeoys, p. 201 (quote found on Wikipedia)

Since I hope to be a college professor myself, I think I will be thinking about this quote in the future…
