Retreat ended at noon on Sunday. The general consensus seemed to be that it was a very good retreat —prayerful and reflective. What a blessing to have the gift of time for prayer and reflection.
Sr. Cabrini’s funeral was on Friday morning. She had great devotion to Blessed Mother Mary. She made and prayed many rosaries.
Sunday night there was an Ecumenical Prayer Service at First United Church. It was planned by Pastor Damen Heitmann and Franciscan Sisters Bernice and Jean. We had prayer, quiet reflection, conversation, singing and heard quotes from Martin Luther King, our Nation’s Presidents, Religious Leaders and Scripture. My favorite quote was from Bishop Desmond Tutu: “Keep feeling the need for being first. But I want you to be the first in love. I want you to be the first in moral excellence. I want you to be the first in generosity.”
We’ve received a couple inches of new snow…so the world looks beautiful…and roads must be slippery, since I’ve heard about many fender-benders and more serious accidents.
Be safe by being careful. Peace and blessings, Sister Mary Lou
