I don’t even want to recount
what has happened
in my life this year.
I just want to be with the One
who already knows.
who knows me through and through
better than I know myself.
Be my guide.
Help me to be aware
Of all that lies before, behind and around me.

“In the midst of all our storms, however, we have the consolation of seeing the religious spirit become solid ... and that is not a little thing.”

“The tribulations which have afflicted our Community have produced very precious fruits.”
“Let us take courage, my very dear Sisters; the Cross, it is true, awaits us at every turn, but it is the way to heaven.”
“When we had left our country and all that was dear to us... We found waiting for us in a poor log cabin our God, our ALL.”
“I passed my days contemplating the sea, the clouds, the vessels, the fish... What a religious pensiveness seizes the soul on beholding the sky and the ocean, which seem to the voyager as the only objects in creation.”
