This week the Church and the Congregation of the Sisters of the Resurrection remember Blessed Celine Borzecka, the Foundress of the Congregation of the Sisters of the Resurrection in a special way. Monday, October 26th is the one hundred and seventh anniversary of her death and Tuesday, October 27th is the eighth anniversary of the beatification of Celine.
Blessed Celine lived in a time when women had limited opportunities for an education and no significant roles in society, parish, or the workplace. Celine believed that the role of women is essential for the transformation of society. Celine's vision was inspired by Jesus who after His Resurrection appeared first to women and entrusted them with the mission of going and telling His disciples that He had Risen.
Blessed Celine is model and patron for wives, mothers, widows, grandmothers and religious.
Celine's vision is the cornerstone of education at Resurrection College Prep High School. Let us thank God for the gift and example of this gentle, loving, and courageous woman who listened to the voice of God and inspires us to do the same.
