What experiences have we had in our lives that have been deeply spiritual encounters with God?
In Sunday's first reading, Elijah encounters God in a tiny whispering sound.
The second reading from Romans poses a challenge to be truthful and to be guided by the Holy Spirit. The Spirit enlightens our journey and feeds our faith.
We have been fed thousands of times by the Eucharist. Where have we been drawn to go because we have been fed? Our eyes of faith allow us to see ways in which Christ is with us in both ordinary and extraordinary ways.
This weekend we as Community celebrate the Jubilee anniversary of seven of our Sisters. Congratulations to each on hearing the tiny whispering sound and accepting the challenge to live according to the Spirit. They have been strengthened by Eucharist to be persons of prayer, presence and hospitality in our Community and the world.
Rooted in the Cross, Word, and Eucharist ... compassionately responding through prayer, presence, and hospitality.
