    There is a St. Joseph's hospital near my home, and right next to it is the convent where the Sisters of St. Joseph live. I live next door to Holy Family Cathedral and School, so the Sisters are a familiar, lovely and welcome sight in the neighborhood. Our block is truly blessed!

    It is a wonderful service that is going on here. Thank you at Catholic.org for making it possible for us to have a minute to walk with the saints each day as we read about thier lives daily and say short prayers with them.
    Saint Emily, I thank God for your life of service, both here and in Heaven and I pray please help me out of the darkness that I am in today , so that I can see light in my life. Amen

    I went to a catholic private girls school called De Vialar in Hilton Park Western Australia which was run by the Sisters of St Joseph of the Apparition. In our chapel was a bone fragment of St Emily. It always fascinated me to the point that I wanted to become a Sister of St Joseph, but I never did but I thank god every day for the best schooling and guidance that I received from such a wonderful group of nuns who were more human and compassionate.. God Bless St Emily....
