Just a month ago Sr. Rebecca, Laura, Theresa and I drove from our motherhouse in Boston to Vermont for an apostolic trip. We had parish exhibits at St. Ambrose and St. Peter's Catholic Church. On our free time, Laura toured us around and showed us the University of Vermont, where she studied Nursing and their Catholic Center where she met Fr. Yvon who is now the pastor at St. Ambrose and St. Peter's. We also had a wonderful time visiting with Laura's mom and hearing stories from her childhood.
This morning, I just viewed a youtube video on Laura's facebook wall showing the flooding of Vermont because of Hurricane Irene. Being there for a few days last month makes me feel very sad for the people in Vermont who have lost their loved ones, their homes and their livelihood. Vermont is such a beautiful state - because of the wonderful people that live there. I have no doubts that the people of Vermont will recover from this tragedy. Please join us in prayer for all who were affected by Hurricane Irene in various parts of our country.
Hear, O LORD, have mercy on me; LORD, be my helper.
You changed my mourning into dancing;
you took off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness.
With my whole being I sing endless praise to you.
O LORD, my God, forever will I give you thanks.
- Psalm 30:11-13
God bless you,
