Today we are united as a Family in celebrating the feast of Our Lady of all Graces.  Mary played a significant role in the vocation of Pierre Bienvenu Noailles and in his work as a Founder – he invited us to honour her with the title of Our Lady of all Graces.  In a sense it is she who draws us into the Holy Family and inspires us to live our call to be Family, with faith and commitment to the mission of Jesus, the mission of communion.  We are reminded of the words of Jesus that a sign of our belonging, as it was for Mary, is to “hear the word of God and do it” (Lk 11:28)
