By Sister Mary Rita Griffin | April 15, 2018 | 2 Comments

I realized that I had become a bit disconnected with the fact that the way in which I completed daily tasks was an answer to God’s calling.

Grieving gracefully into a future full of hope

By Sister Connie Kramer | April 13, 2016 | 0 Comments

Saint Mother Theodore once said, “Treat yourself as you treat others, with kindness and indulgence.” I firmly believe that, above all, to comfort oneself or another involves being gentle with oneself or another.
