Remain in harmony, united together….

Yesterday, forty-seven Ursuline Sisters of Mount Saint Joseph gathered at the Immaculate Parish in Owensboro to pray with the faith community for vocations to consecrated life.  The prayer of adoration from noon to five in the evening was a welcome space in my heart to savor time before the Blessed Sacrament.    The time concluded with beautiful, sacred vespers with the faith community of the Immaculate Parish. We, the Ursuline Sisters were asked to lead part of the vesper prayer with the singing  of the Magnificat.
Following the prayer time, the parish had prepared a delicious feast with a menu that would make you salivate, a delightful and scrumptious feast!  A wonderful part of the evening was being appreciated as expressed so sincerely by one of the parishioners who served us.  She said, “Sister Lois Lindle was my first grade teacher and I adored her!  I truly adored her!”  We love and adore you too Lois!

As we concluded we parted pausing to recall the words of our founder, Saint Angela Merici. “Remain in harmony, united together, all of one heart and one will…See, then, how important is this union and concord; so, long or it, pursue it, embrace it, hold on to it with all your might…”
