Sisters of St. Francis of the Holy Cross in Green Bay, WI

Reflection for Aug. 13, 2017

by Sister Carolyn Zahringer

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.


Congratulations to all the Sisters. May God's blessings continue to shower upon them & your community.

God's blessings to all the sisters. You are a very special group of women. The Holy Spirit has brought you into our lives and we thank all of you for your years of dedication.

Congratulations Sisters on your Jubilee celebrations!!
Our world is a better place because each of you arose to the challenge to live & be guided according to the Spirit!...
Thank you, each of you, for responding to the tiny whisper of God!

Well said, Carrie!
See you at the celebration!

Thanks for connecting the ordinary to the Extraordinary!

God Bless all the Sisters. A special hello to Sister Renee who I worked with at SFA. I ask all the Sisters for prayers as I am having back surgery at HFMMC on August 23, 2017.
