October 15, 2018:“Seeking God In All Things”
Cornelia (Peacock) Connelly suffered through many personal struggles
and tragedies. Out of this suffering she began the Society of the Holy Child Jesus.
Cornelia was able to inspire in her sisters something of her own serenity in adversity,
and soon they were running schools for those in need and in poverty. Her community
members also taught day, night, and Sunday classes to accommodate young factory
workers. The mystery of God embracing all that is human was the foundation
of her charism.
