Having just received word of the death of another Ursuline Sister, my sister in community, I pause to give thanks for her life and the many lives she has touched in her ministry. The feeling of sadness and loss is a reality, but it is soon replaced with feelings of rejoicing for her battle is over, the victory over pain and illness is over, and she is now experiencing the fullness of life eternal. What ever eternal life looks like we are promised that it is more than we could ask or imagine.
Eternal peace and light upon you Sister! I ask that you intercede for us as your Mount Saint Joseph Ursuline Community. Grant us wisdom and welcoming hearts! Intercede for vocations to our community, that the legacy of Angela Merici and her mission may be realized through her daughters!
