Throughout our lives we all get chosen for something. Sometimes we might be called to do something we never dreamed of doing. Isaiah tells us: “the Lord has spoken, who formed me as his servant from the womb” (49:5) Paul tells us that we are “called to be holy” (1:2). John the Baptist recognizes Jesus as the “Lamb of God” and says that he saw the “Spirit come down…and remain upon him”(1:33). What does this all tell us?
We, too, have been chosen by our God to be servants, to be holy and to testify that Jesus is indeed the one who came to save us. The Spirit has come upon us and lights our paths as we strive to be holy and to invite others to know Jesus as the Lamb of God.
Please pray for those Sisters called to serve in leadership for the Sisters of St. Francis of the Holy Cross and ask the Spirit to continue in guiding us into the future!
