Faithfulness and God’s mission: a Foundation Day reflection

Posted on October 22, 2017 at 4:46 am by

I find strength in the passages written by Mother Theodore that are oft quoted and perhaps even more so in the lesser-known stories of her day-to-day life. She walked the grounds of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods and cared so much for the fledgling school, its students and the teachers. I believe that her prayers are still with us and perhaps with me in a special way because I now watch over the school that she created. Continue reading

Language barriers, smiles and unexpected gifts: Sister Denise Wilkinson reflects from France

Posted on April 13, 2017 at 4:34 am by

Most of all I notice smiles. I didn’t expect smiles as comfort, joy, wordless compassion. Right now that’s what they are for me and I hope for the sisters I encounter. Continue reading
