Alone with God Alone

Another week in Boston has flown by! The class on St. Paul with Celia finished yesterday. As a final project for the class, we worked to develop a presentation on St. Paul. Our hope is to take this presentation back to St. Louis and offer it to parishes to help them celebrate the Year of St. Paul. Would anyone like to share with us what you are doing to celebrate this Year of St. Paul?

Sr. Carmen has finished her annual retreat and Encounter (a series of meetings and updating for the Sisters), and Emily is preparing to begin her annual retreat. Annual retreat is a very special and graced time when we come apart to be with God and listen to Him more profoundly. You are in our prayers during this time, and please keep us in yours!

A quote from our Co-foundress, Mother Thecla Merlo, to conclude this post: “Our heart, our soul is too big to be happy with things which end. Only God can make us happy – only serving God, loving God alone, sacrificing ourselves for Him. Then one is always happy. Let us unite ourselves intimately to God and we will be happy in any place, with anyone, in any work.”

God bless you!
- Emily
