For our sake...
He became a man, was unjustly condemned...
He died for us that we might live for Him.
Let's live our lives in an "attitude of offertory" - uniting ourselves with the self-offering of Christ for the glory of the Father and the salvation of our nation...especially working to bring an end to the silent, horrific, unseen, and forgotten holocaust of abortion.
Today has been a sobering day for us Sisters. But we do not give up hope. We are his disciples. We must pick up our cross daily. We find our strength in the passion of Christ and place our hopes in His promise of ultimate victory. May you too find your strength in the paschal mystery.
It is from the blood of Christ that all draw the strength to commit themselves to promoting life. It is precisely this blood that is the most powerful source of hope, indeed it is the foundation of the absolute certitude, that in God's plan, life will be victorious.
Pope John Paul II ~ Evangelium Vitae #25
I hope to have a post up by the weekend of some of the recent happenings here in the monastery.
May the passion of Christ and the sorrows of Mary be ever in our hearts!
