On January 20, we celebrated the feast of Blessed Father Basil Moreau, Founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross. Father Moreau began laying the foundation for the congregation in 1835. Moreau had a vision of educating minds and hearts by using the model of the Holy Family as his guide. This priest from Le Mans, France devoted his life to prayer, evangelization, and continuing the work of the Resurrection. He was truly ahead of his time. Father. Moreau continues to serve as an excellent example of trusting in Divine Providence and Zeal – which is the burning desire to make God, known, loved, and served.
