Reflective Moments with Angela

By Sister Michele Morek In the novitiate I worked in the Diet Kitchen with Sister Mary Laura, who would sing “Don’t let the stars get in your eyes …” but I beg to differ. Now eagerly awaiting the Green Comet and the end of cloudy weather, I have been reflecting on how I love stars,…

Reflective Moments with Angela March 2022

By Sister Marietta Wethington My mother, a very wise woman, used to tell me not to make a mountain out of a mole hill. I can do that quite easily.

Reflective Moments with Angela February 2022
