THANK YOU FOR TODAY

February 21, 2018

Gracious God, thank you for the gift of today. 

Refresh me. Invite me to discover your presence in each person that I meet

And every event that I encounter.

Teach me when to speak and when to listen.

Sr. Pat Bergen, CSJ, From A Reflection Guide for International Health Activities

YOU ARE ASKED TO LOVE

February 16, 2018

“Our job is to love others without stopping to inquire whether or not they are worthy. That is not our business and, in fact, it is nobody’s business. What we are asked to do is to love, and this love itself will render both ourselves and our neighbors worthy.”

Thomas Merton

RETURN TO THE LORD

February 14, 2018

“Even now,” declares the LORD, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning.” Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the LORD your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity.

Joel 2:12-:13

 

LISTEN TO YOUR HEART

You will know your vocation by the joy that it brings you.
You will know. You will know when it’s right.

– Dorothy Day

I WILL NOT BE SHAKEN.

February 8, 2018

I have set the Lord always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.

Psalm 16:8

REFLECTIONS OF THE LIGHT

We are the children of the Universe
Dust of the stars
Depth of the night
Slivers of the sun

Sister Joan Chittister

MAKE IT COUNT!

February 1, 2018

 

This life, you must know
as the tiny splash of a raindrop.

A thing of beauty that disappears as it comes into being.

Therefore, set your goal.
Make use of every day and every night.

– Tibetan Buddhist Saying

LIFE IS AN ADVENTURE!

“The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.”

Oprah Winfrey

YOU WILL FIND REST

January 29, 2018

Come to me, all of you who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke and put it on you and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in spirit, and you will find rest. For the yoke I will give you is easy, and the load I will put on you is light.

Matthew 11:28-30

CHOOSE LIFE FULLY

January 25, 2018

Some may say that religious life is declining, but in my heart I know that God calls not only to me, but the women of today to be bold and choose life fully – a life that responds to the marginalized and the ever pressing needs in our world today and tomorrow.

– Sister Pat Dowling, “Silhouettes, Personal Reflections of Sisters of Bon Secours, USA”
