CORNELIA’S LIFE: Review and complete Coloring Cornelia Book (see coloring book questions link below). Read A Generous Love: The Life of Cornelia Connelly. Cornelia starts a new religious community of sisters: The Society of the Holy Child Jesus. She chose the name because Cornelia believed God lives and acts in each person – just as God sent his son Jesus to enter our world to teach us how to act.

VALUES: Perseverance
QUOTE: “We never know what we can do until we try. Perseverance gains the crown” C.C.
