Thoughts from a Franciscan Sister

Recommended Posts

I had a funny experience last night...One of our residents was paged to come to the nurses office.  I was asked to help get her down...

I went up and she was in just a shirt, no pantaloons or robe to be found.  After a little while of looking around, I gave up and helped her wrap a blanket around her lower extremeness and head downstairs.

It was comical, the whole adventure and I'm tempted to write a little post about it. 

However, I'm not sure if I should.  Any thoughts (you know, respect for privacy - although I wouldn't mention a name)

As we approach the wonderful feast of Corpus Christi, I couldn't resist reflecting upon this amesome gift of Jesus' Eucharistic presence! There is so much to say: where can I begin, or end? The Catechism of the Catholic Church (1324) calls the Eucharist "the source and summit of the Christian life...[f]or in the blessed Eucharist is contained the whole spiritual good of the Church, namely Christ himself, our Pasch." [ 593 more words. ]

I will always remember the first time I heard the St Ambrose story of how roses came to have thorns. It was one Christmas Eve when I was still very small, and my Grandma sat us down and shared with all my sisters and I why the roses had thorns. It gave me a greater love for Our Lady too because she explained to us that the Holy Virgin was just like a rose, but without thorns because she was without sin just like you said in the article Sister. Thank you for writing this, it gave me some wonderful childhood memories to remember!
