Double Doings

Today is a doubly special day for us: Not only is it the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart; this year, the feast falls on the anniversary of the Daughters of St. Paul. (To celebrate, I am making a strawberry-rhubarb pie which the two of us who are home today will enjoy at supper.)

And since we are in the "B" cycle of Sunday readings (Solemnities are liturgically like Sundays, except for the "obligation" part), there is even a connection in the readings: Today's second reading (from Ephesians) includes the "motto" of the Daughters of St. Paul, words that used to appear on the large medal the sisters received when they made their vows.

These words of St. Paul sum up the ultimate goal of the Pauline mission:

That through the Church, 
God's manifold wisdom might be made known.
