I Would Like …

I would like the angels of Heaven to be among us.  I would like an abundance of peace.  I would like full vessels of charity.

– St. Brigit of Kildare

Life as a Sister: Picture Yourself as a Sister


Smile at each other,
Smile at your wife,
Smile at your husband,
Smile at your children,
Smile at each other-
It doesn’t matter who it is-
and that will help you grow up in
Greater love for each other.

– St. Teresa of Calcutta

…but yours.

“Christ has not body now, but yours. No hands, not feet on earth, but yours. Yours are the eyes through which Christ looks compassion into the world. Yours are the feet with which Christ walks to do good. Yours are the hands with which Christ blesses the world.”

– St. Teresa of Avila

Who May Abide?

Lord, who may abide in your tent, and dwell on your holy mountain?

Whoever walks without fault; who does what is righteous, and speaks with heartfelt truth.

Whoever does not slander with the tongue; who does no wrong to a neighbor, who casts no slur on a friend, who looks with scorn on the wicked, but honors those who fear the Lord.

Whoever keeps an oath, whatever the cost, who lends no money at interest, and accepts no bribes against the innocent.

Such a one shall never be shaken.

Psalm 15

Life as a Sister: Community-based Outreach

Faith in God

Do not let your hearts be troubled. You have faith in God; have faith also in me. In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If there were not, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back again and take you to myself, so that where I am you also may be.” Thomas said to him, “Master, we do not know where you are going; how can we know the way?” Jesus to him, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you know me, then you will also know my father.”

John 14: 1-7

Life as a Sister: Making Decisions Through Prayer

Jesus Brings Salvation

At that time Jesus came to Jericho and intended to pass through the town. Now a man there named Zacchaeus, who was a chief tax collector and also a wealthy man, was seeking to see who Jesus was; but he could not see him because of the crowd, for he was short in stature. So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore tree in order to see Jesus, who was about to pass that way. When he reached the place, Jesus looked up and said, “Zacchaeus, come down quickly, for today I must stay at your house.” And he came down quickly and received him with joy. When they saw this, they began to grumble, saying, “He has gone to stay at the house of a sinner.” But Zacchaeus stood there and said to the Lord. “Behold, half of my possessions, Lord, I shall give to the poor, and if I have extorted anything from anyone I shall repay it four times over.” And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house because this man too is a descendant of Abraham. For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save what was lost.”

Luke 19: 1-10

Faith That Saves

As Jesus approached Jericho a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging, and hearing a crowd going by, he inquired what was happening. They told him, “Jesus of Nazareth is passing by.” He shouted, “Jesus, Son of David, have pity on me!” The people walking in front rebuked him, telling him to be silent, but he kept calling out all the more, “Son of David, have pity on me!” Then Jesus stopped and Jesus asked him, “What do you want me to do for you?” He replied, “Lord, please let me see.”  Jesus told him, “Have sight; your faith has saved you.” He immediately received his sight and followed him, giving glory to God.  When they saw this, all the people gave praise to God.

Luke 18: 35-43

Life as a Sister: Using Your Gifts


Humility is the mother of all virtues; purity, charity and obedience. It is in being humble that our love becomes real, devoted and ardent. If you are humble nothing will touch you, neither praise nor disgrace, because you know what you are. If you are blamed you will not be discouraged. If they call you a saint you will not put yourself on a pedestal.

– St. Teresa of Calcutta

Life as a Sister: Exploring Religious Vocation

Lesson We All Need

It is a lesson we all need – to let alone the things that do not concern us. He has other ways for others to follow Him; all do not go by the same path. It is for each of us to learn the path by which He requires us to follow Him, and to follow Him in that path.

– St. Katharine Drexel
