Advent Photo Update

Advent is concerned with that very connection between memory and hope which is so necessary to man. Advent’s intention is to awaken the most profound and basic emotional memory within us, namely, the memory of the God who became a child. This is a healing memory; it brings hope. The purpose of the Church’s year [...]

Pro Orantibus Day

Something else that Our Lady’s Presentation makes me think of is perseverance. In the evocative iconography associated with this feast, the Child Mary is shown moving away from her parents as she climbs the steps of the Temple. Mary does not look back and, in a clear reference to the evangelical admonition, she moves forward [...]

Wounds of Christ

Today is the beautiful and moving Feast of the Stigmata of St. Francis.  To be so surrendered to Our Crucified Love!  How much we learn from this meeting of Love with love. The perfect day to meditate on Galatians 2:20 "I live, no longer I, but Christ lives in me; insofar as I now live [...]

O Lord, I am Your Servant!

One of the things that I love to meditate on are the many paradoxes of our Catholic faith, because they are not what they seem to be at first glance, and if you would understand them you must take the time to look more closely. Understanding paradoxes require a disposition like Our Lady who with [...]

"Every time I extend my arms in prayer to God, I feel that at the same time I am holding the entire world in my embrace." - a solitary hermit in Chile "He's got the whole world in His Hands..." I wanted to share the following comment with you from Contemplatives and the [...]

St. Kateri Tekakwitha

Today is the feast of St. Kateri Tekakwitha..  She is a favorite of many of the Sisters and even has a home in one of our stained glass windows in the Chapel.  Let us ask the "Lily of the Mohawks" to intercede for us.  Like her may we be single-hearted, determined, and fully surrendered to [...]
