Today we visited Florissant, Missouri where St. Philippine spent a large majority of her time. We were able to tour the chapel and housing quarters where St. Philippine lived and taught. It was amazing to see that St. Philippine only slept under a small staircase (yes, just like Harry Potter!) and often was up most of the night praying and helping to mend the students' clothes, socks, and shoes. We had the opportunity to place a small intention of our own in her room along with the intentions of many other pilgrims who visit Florissant. It was so special to see all that we have learned about in school finally brought to life.
