This year of 2010, Thanksgiving is falling on November 25th. That is very meaningful to all Ursulines around the world. On that day 475 years ago, St. Angela Merici and her company of St. Ursula gathered to sign the book and dedicate their lives to good. So it the 475th Anniversary of our Founding!!!! We definitely have many blessings to be thankful for this Thanksgiving Day and Ursuline Anniversary Day.
I look at the two pictures above-Angela and her woman gathered together and the Disney characters are gathering together. Then I reflect and think about how many of us will be gathering with others to celebrate life, share our blessings and show gratitude to God and others for our wonderful lives. The importance of Gathering was present in 1535 and is present today in 2010. Enjoy your Gatherings!!!!
